Federal Censorship Commission Strikes Again

Not content to merely protect children from sex, the government now thinks it should protect them from violence as well:

Television networks are free to sprinkle their programs with shootings, slashings, torture and other gore because the government has no regulatory authority over violent programming.

But a draft report being circulated at the Federal Communications Commission says Congress can change that, without violating the First Amendment.

I doubt that. The FCC itself violates the First Amendment. But the government (and, even more tragically, most Americans) quit caring what the Constitution says long ago.
