American TV Networks Timid Up

American TV networks are becoming more timid about about what they’re shown. Or at least more timid about standing up for their programming decisions. “It is easy to conclude that corporations like the Walt Disney Company, which owns ABC, are so nervous about how the re-election of George W. Bush may empower the Federal Communications Commission that they are falling over themselves to please and appease Washington. And the victors are enjoying the moment.”
