Censorship by the Tyranny of the Few - by Jeff Jarvis

Jeff Jarvis investigates one of the latest FCC fines:
And on the basis of that, the FCC decided to bring down the heavy hammer of government censorship and fine Fox an incredible $1.2 million for suggesting -- not depicting but merely suggesting -- sex on a show that had already been canceled because the marketplace didn't like it anyway.
I'm sensing a lucrative angle in there ... somewhere ... can't quite pinpoint it yet:
  1. Watch TV
  2. Write Bogus Letters
  3. ...?
  4. Profit!
It'd be nice if certain people spent more time having sex than complain about what little there isn't on TV to the FCC.
