RSACi
What with all the content outlets, Net technology, and information systems Microsoft owns and distributes, it naturally wants the ability to rate the content it produces. Thus the Recreational Software Advisory Council on the Internet (RSACi). Founded in 1994 as a sort of “parental advisory” sticker for home software, RSAC took on the Internet as well in 1996, with funding from Microsoft and other industry heavyweights. The RSACi ratings standard, a 0-5 scale for sex, violence, and adult language, is backed by companies Microsoft courts, such as PointCast, Disney, USWeb, and others.

IT'S TIME TO TALK ABOUT MEDIA BIAS

We believe that journalism needs to stand for something right now. That the press is the enemy of secrecy and corruption. That reporting without a sense of right and wrong only helps liars and propagandists succeed. And that we're in this fight for the long haul.

So we're hoping to raise $30,000 in new monthly donations this fall. Read our argument for journalism that is fair and accurate and stands for something—and join us with a tax-deductible monthly donation (or make a one-time gift) if you agree.
