McCain on censorship...

On TV censorship…"I think people make choices. Nobody forces them to watch those shows," he said. "As long as it's not child pornography, those things that are just beyond the pale — I can't blame a television show for causing violence."

'Sons of Anarchy' Controversy: Creator Kurt Sutter Blasts Back at Parents Television Council | Fall TV - Yahoo TV

Concerning the show Sons of Anarchy. I watched the first few seasons – gritty and hard core. I stopped watching because I found it actually put me on edge. But Sen McCain does raise good points in the above statement.

Not everything out there can be Nickelodeon and NPR. Here's a unique concept - If you don't like something, don't watch it.

More people wanting to force their will on others. If you are concerned about your kids watching this stuff try being a parent instead of a pussified adult and don't let them watch it. Or better yet, discipline and raise your kids to know the difference between right and wrong. For instance, crime is wrong.

I know, shocking. >_>

I know right!

I'm surprised no one has commeneted on McCains comment. I guess when a politician actually says something that makes sense no one cares...

This is about allowing the government to license and control the media...and giving it tools to prosecute and harass those it does not like.

Expect Fox News, Matt Drudge, and anyone who publishes stories the government does not like to be targets.

in my opinion, he was stating the obvious. no need to give him an 'atta boy'. again, this IMO, YMMV, etc.

Obvious to you because you are a smart guy but such observations are not so readily made by more common folk...
