The FCC Goes All Nanny

So the FCC is looking into regulating the level of violence on TV, including cable, although it admits that content edicts pose constitutional issues on when end as well as purely jurisdictional concerns as to whether the commission has the authority to regulate cable, service consumers pay for. Violence makes an easier political target than sex, because these days liberals are in as high moral dudgeon about it as "family values" conservatives (See Jane Mayer's tut-tutting on 24 in The New Yorker). Let alone that there is more information than ever available for parents about TV, movies, games and other media, the FCC would have us believe that today's parents are helpless doofuses overwhelmed by a media onslaught.
