Jeff Jarvis battles it out with Robert Knight about the role of the FCC and censorship.

Jarvis has been leading a charge against groups like CWA and PTC that want to dictate what we can and cannot see on the tube. Jeff has uncovered a huge conspiracy here: The shocking truth about the FCC: Censorship by the tyranny of the few

It is shocking enough that what tens of millions of us are permitted to see by our government can be determined by 159 ... or 90 ... or 23.

But it gets even better: I examined the complaints and found that all but two of them were virtually identical. In other words, one person took the time to write a letter and 20 other people then photocopied or merely emailed it to the FCC many times. They all came from an automated complaint factory like the one I write about here. Only two letters were not the form letter.
