US government goes after television stations

The Federal Communications Commission recently levelled a new record fine against 111 US television stations. The fine of $3.6 million was because a crime show, “Without a Trace” suggested that some teens in the show had participated in an orgy. The key phrase here is “suggested” not showed.

In the new theocratic atmosphere of the United States the government has said that they want to send a clear message to television producers what they will and will not allow. The FCC has become far more strict under the control of religious conservatives. American television shows are far tamer than what is routinely shown on television in other Western countries.

The FCC is in a symbiotic relationship with theocratic Right wing groups. These groups solicit complaints from their members and then the FCC uses the number of complaints received to justify their attack on the First Amendment.

I would have titled the commentary, "Demopublican Taliban's FCC (Fascist Communications Commission)goes after television stations."
