Broadcasters Concerned by Anti-Indecency Push
I Want Media linked to two articles about the indency showdown. In the first piece, the Wall Street Journal reports that broadcasters meeting at the annual National Association of Broadcasters meeting want to right the current battle by the federal government to impose stricter fines on questionable content because if they don’t, the emboldened Congress would try to tackle cable and satellite networks next. Besides, as Clear Channel exec Mark Mays said, “Congress and the FCC have done a very poor job of explaining what indecency is.”
In the other article, the Washington Times reports on a Pew Center study that shows liberal Democrats are more likely to oppose tougher indecency standards, while conservative Republicans are more likely to support them. You knew this already, but it’s nice to have it in writing.
