This is definitly a free speach issue. I have watched the Howard Stern show on E! several times. Some shows are just outright hilarious, and some are
not so funny. There have been moments when I don't agree with him, but...
The bad part of this is that the FCC is getting down everybody's throats about 'lude and indecent behavior'... it's just censorship! The sad thing
is that if there are 100 people, and 1 person doesn't like something, they can go to court and restrict the other 99 people from it as well. The
media is getting insane! We need to take it back... get control of it again. The 'people' only get to hear what the FCC or the mainstream media
wants us to hear, and when someone jumps up with an opposing view, it gets shut up too quickly.
I agree, kids shouldn't be watching or listening to adult content, but look at it this way: It's not the government's responsibility to police your
kids! It's your own fault if they watch or listen to this stuff. It's YOUR responsibility to know what they are doing, who they are hanging out
with, and what they are listening to and learning. Parent's are way too lazy when it comes to raising their kids. It's almost like they didn't
really want them in the first place. I mean, really... if you are gonna buy a dog, you expect to feed it, give it water, make sure it doesn't bite
people, and you know you have to clean up it's crap. Why should having a kid be any different? The government agencies aren't babysitters. Take a
bit of your precious time and pay attention to what your kids are doing for christ's sake!!! If you don't like your kids watching it, YOU censor
it... don't ruin it for the rest of us because you are too lazy to turn the channel or discipline your own kids.
*EDIT: On a side note, if this doesn't end soon, I'm gonna start a movement to keep Mormans and other religious rights off the street and off my
doorstep! Wouldn't be so concerned, but they don't6 have an 'off' switch, and it takes a person forever to get rid of them without getting just
outright nasty. Is the FCC gonna do anything about that? Nope.
