NEW YORK, Feb 25 (Reuters) - U.S. regulators should consider whether
radio and television services carried by cable and satellite must adhere
to indecency standards, Federal Communications Commissioner Kevin Martin
said on Wednesday.



If the FCC can regulate the content of *private* media which one must
choose (and pay) to receive, what is to stop them from regulating the
Internet or other interstate media?   Such attempts would be a
violation of the 1st.
