Remember laughing at Rockefeller for saying he would like the FCC to shut down Fox and MSNBC?
There's no content being changed under this law; the government is just asking television stations and ad agencies to NOT intentionally increase the volumn on our television sets during commercial breaks. It's bad enough that they air 5, 6 7 commercials in a row between program segments, but do they have to assault my ears with every commercial break?

The only "attention" advertisers get by purposefully increasing the volumn is me turning my TV down or changing the channel. Either way, I ignore the commercials but only after my ears have been raped from them being so loud.
