Jail Time For Broadcast Indecency? Fuckin' A

Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner III, a major Congressional leader, now says he wants to make broadcast indecency a criminal offense.

He'd rather blame the offenders, rather than penalize the networks, who can be sandbagged by live utterances and incidents (ie, Bono's Golden Globes "F" Word and Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction).

Pros: It'd hold the performers responsible. Cons: One more nail in the coffin for free speech.

It's unclear how much support there is for such a plan... Stay tuned.
