Editorial: What Price, Censorship?

Filed under  by Amanda Toering — 03/28/2005 @ 9:49 am

The Detroit Free Press has this to say about the possibility of increased indecency fines:

Most parents rightly want their children shielded from the dicey language, sexual innuendo and seamy behavior that sometimes erupt on the airwaves. Heck, lots of adults cringe at this stuff.

But until more people turn off the TV than sit vacuously in front of it, the situation won’t change. Bigger fines won’t stop cultural drivel. Changing the channel is the marketplace, consumer-driven solution – without the downside of having networks shy away from serious topics for fear of offending someone in Washington.

From the Freep.
