New legislation proposed by West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller (through your tax dollars) would allow governmental regulation of violence on broadcast television, cable and satellite television.

The law will give new powers to the FCC, Broadcasting & Cable reported yesterday.

Rockefeller, The Democratic Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence*, will reportedly try to draft a law that will pass constitutional scrutiny. That first amendment can be a tricky thing to circumvent.

Whether the legislation would cover violent news reports about wars remains to be seen. But in any case, TheFeed thanks Jay Rockefeller for  protecting us from pretend evils that live inside the television.
