This truly frightens me:

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted Stevens said on Tuesday he would push for applying broadcast decency standards to cable television and subscription satellite TV and radio.

I’ve always been quite comfortable with the line between public vs. private airwaves. Uphold certain standards on the airwaves but leave alone anything that people pay to receive.

Stephens appears ready to broadjump over this line.

I doubt this will gain much traction. Mainline Republicans will act quickly to distance themselves from this type of idiocy.
