    You could be right, eco. There could be a regulation that prohibit boobs on CBS.

    If there is, I think it's an anachronism and has no value for modern day America, and may not be constitutional, either.

    We have ~6 public channels (national). They are regulated by vote. Seems fair enough to me. There's virtually no regulation on cable, sat, net, etc. It's like regulating public radio.

    Euros wanna cry about the no nudity, but they ban Michael Savage from entering the UK.

    Rabbit ears.

    Donca remember? Digital converters were given away to seniors about 2 years ago.

    If eco gets 10 channels, I'm jealous. I couldn't get any, so I'm stuck paying ATT.

    Well, with PBS, there's enough government entanglement that I can certainly see requiring certain content and prohibiting others.

    CBS, no.

    I'm a bit lost on why I can't restrict my children from watching porn and at the same time admit that it does them no harm if they do see it. Though honestly there is no rules in my house hold on what my children can watch on tv. There really is no use for such rules.

    Wait, you two. Not so fast. First we need to define "pornography".

    Well, I had rules. They changed as the kid grew older, and as tv content changed.

    I imagine this is what most families do.

    CBS, no.

    It's limited public airwaves, regulated no different than streets, water or any other common - by vote. It in no way regulates any other media than that which is broadcast for free to the public over limited radio freqs. Basic cable/dish has rated R, +1 soft porn and +2 hard porn. TVs can run on the net. People can get/do what they want in their house, but commons is different.



    ps. I don't have a TV.

    No doubt that is what most families do and I have no problem with such rules. I'm really indifferent on the whole issue and whatever choice is fine by me. I just think that such rules are pointless and have really no reason to be made.
