The publication of the magazine tv diskurs and its books aim to inform society about how media influences children, how children can be supported in their dealing with media information, and what parents can do to protect their children from harmful content. The FSF tries to demonstrate the diversity of issues connected with media. It wants readers to form an opinion on these issues and the impact that TV and other media have on what a person knows and on how he or she develops values.
