Is increasing fines for broadcasting "slips" a good thing? or does it stifle free speech.
I am with GW Bush when he says that the first line of defense is the parent and the use of the off button or changing the channel
Broadcasters should act responsibly however instead of just proposing the raising of fines from a max $32,000 to $500,000 without a definative guide as to what is reasonably acceptable is going to make TV duller than it is already.
TV should not be set to the decency standards of the most anally retentive person in the land or the most open minded person. It should be what a reasonable person can accept.
The fuse that brought it all to light...janet jackson...to me was an over reaction on behalf of the FCC and to me goes against the spirt of freedom.
