Re: Economic downturn took a detour at Capitol Hill
But this is where you whole case falls apart. No one is preventing them in voicing their first amendment rights... they can still voice their political opinions in many many many other forums without impunity, just not via the TV air waves. You also ban porn from the airwaves, and other things, what about their 1st amendment rights? Not to mention that TV companies refuse to air certain things because of religious or political bias.. what about the first amendment rights of the producers of said material? We can go on and on about your 1st amendment rights, but they are in reality curbed every day for the greater good of some sort (porn to children and so on), so why not this? It is not like people wont get their daily political dose on radio, newspapers or the internet...
