What Part of the First Amendment Don't You Understand?
I'm talking to you, FCC Commissioner Kevin J. Martin.
According to a Reuters wirestory posted on Infoshop, Martin wants the FCC to consider regulating indecency on satellite and cable (FCC's Martin ponders indecency on pay TV, radio).
Let me think about that ... um, no.
"Cable companies need some way to empower parents and families to have more choice," Martin said. "I think that it has the potential to be a problem when they are receiving things they object to and have to pay for that."
It's called stop paying for cable, Martin. It's called a lockbox, Martin. Its called the First Amendment, Martin.
What a maroon.

I thought this was what the V-chip was for, anyway.
Actually I heard a security consultatant talk about the V-chip once. He said the companies never get calls from parents asking how to program the V-chip so that their kids can only watch certain channels. Instead, all the calls are all from parents asking how to disable the V-chip because their kids have reprogrammed it to lock out channels.
