    Well, the FCC does regulate broadcasters, but if they did not, the system would break down. A channel has to be assigned, frequencies partioned out, etc.

    At one time, the FCC DID censor the content of tv. But to my (admittedly limited) knowledge, that has not been true in at least a decade.

    There is nothing civil about assasination jokes.
    So, in your opinion should people who write a book about killing Bush be prosecuted? Were they? Or is this goofy law more about stifling political speech concerning democrats?

    This is also a nuisance post. Do you have a POV on the OP, sir?

    I don't recall the case name. But I believe there has been conviction of 3rd party, iirc.

    This is not my day to play Supreme Court Justice, and I do it as a volunteer only for people who ask respectfully. I do not care to research this arcania for you.

    I don't see the harm being done by nudity or profanity so I can't say I see restricting it as a the best for the public.

    There is no need for nudity or profanity on the very few public airwave stations, and keeping those stations family-friendly is the will of the people.
    I don't understand why there needs to be a need and it really has nothing to do with the will of the people but the rights of people. If people don't like the programming they can very easily not tune in.

    Well, conspiracy to murder is a big hammer, eco. Once a death occurs, the cops and/or the FBI can roll up a whole lot of people, and I imagine more'n one of this fringe groups has been broken that way.

    Do you remember any of the facts? How did they kill the victim?

    Well, I am a prude, and I don't think anybody has the right to impose their prudery on others, whether they themselves are prudes or not.

    Neo-nazi gang (2 males and a female?) attacked someone/people in the street (pipes/knives?) and the material found in their possession (home) lead to a conviction of the publisher/leader, due to the direct and real of the publishings.
