On regular TV, certain things have to be on at certain times and you can’t “curse” unless under certain circumstances, nudity is a no no, extreme violence is ok as long as you don’t actually show it fully being done.
On cable TV it’s go for broke!
So….what is sort of being said here is that if you have money you have the ability to filter out what is good and bad for you without government control, (barring the “V” chip, haha!) but if you don’t have the money to pay for it you aren’t capable enough to handle these ideas unless someone “intelligent” i.e.: Oprah, Doc Phil, exposes you to it, or the government filters it out so nothing bad is exposed to you.
I don’t get it, either censure all broadcasting or don’t.
