Violence: The new porn

The FCC is considering trying to regulate violence on TV — and not just on broadcast but also, without the slightest authority, on cable. Beware the hazard to our First Amendment: Now the FCC will put itself in the position of regulating whether violence is acceptable. On ’24′? On the news? On a sports show? On a documentary about the war? This is not, not, not government’s role. They made the First Amendment first for a reason. It says no laws, damnit, no laws.
