    First I am not upset, but I was surprised and caught off guard. I should have reviewed the content myself before I started it up with my son and didn't know the ropes yet and was unable to navigate around items I wanted to skip.

    I don't expect anybody to change for Nintendo, that is silly to even suggest. But yes, Google, Yahoo, Outlook, Digg, RSS, etc. do have tools that allow me to search for terms in news items I want and I can filter out those I don't in my reader.

    It just seems like it would be a good idea to build in filter and search terms in this new tool from Nintendo.
    Perhaps, like "safe search" from Google, Nintendo could supply a prebuilt "safe news" filter that would be setup under through parental controls.

    That is pretty funny and true.

    But I do agree with the OP, lots of kids are gonna have nintendo Wii's to play with too and as such there should be a way to filter out adult news content.

    Personally, I myself don't enjoy looking at those headlines.
    Makes me feel like my wii is filthy or something and that the media has to find innapropriate things to make a little bit of money.

    I looked in the parental controls, myself (a 17 year-old teen -- who'da thunk it!?) found nothing on censoring innapropriate stuff.

    I don't like anything vulgar, so until Nintendo can give us something to let us censor some of it, I'll just not use the channel, yo.

    And for the record, I only watch Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, TV Land, and Discovery channel.
    That's how vulgar I am.
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    God i love these people, When the hell are these people going to take responsiblity for their own children. Who the hell do you think you are thinking that its now everyone elses responsiblity to look after what your kid is able to do with whatever device. Bad things were around when we were kids too, nudity in movies, stories of murder etc. Like i said above dont blame nintendo your your lack of tact in dealing with what your kid can and cant access on the internet or elsewhere. Take your complaint and stuff it, Wuss

    Dude, their 7. I actually agree with you on this as my mother shielded me from the news until i was 12 and thats just stupid. I think 9 or 10 is a good age to get kids intrested in the World but not at 7 were the only problem in their lives are "cooties."
