Chief Chaos BS: More right wing US media censorship (26) RE: BS: More right wing US media censorship 03 May 04

We used to have a similar situation in North Carolina with NYPD Blue. The local media refused to run it and substituted old Billy Graham revivalist hour shows. I guess we were supposed to pray for our bretheren who were getting to see Dennis Franze's butt.

I don't think this should be allowed. Whoever owns the cable company gets to decide what you watch? Am I going to be able to watch the Republican convention or Democrat convention based on whatever part of the country I'm in because the cable owner is a Rep. or Dem.?
I think the suggestion of the FCC pulling their license is a good one. We got all upset aout a boob flash as it would influence young minds and was inappropriate, but the conglomeration who owns the cable company or network affiliation gets to influence our minds by denying anyone to profer a viewpoint with which they disagree?

If I were ABC I'd have a close look at contractual obligations with the affiliates and have a nice little a courtroom with the highest paid lawyers in the industry!
