Right Wing Nuts: In light of reports that the FCC has been deluged with complaints about indecency on television, the truth is 99.8 percent of the grievances were submitted by one conservative group called the Parents Television Council.

An advocate of artists made the comment that one small group was trying to dictate what the rest of America could watch on television. "It means that really a tiny minority with a very focused political agenda is trying to censor American television and radio," said Jonathan Rintels, president and executive director of the Center for Creative Voices in Media, an artists’ advocacy group.

The PTC's response was utterly amazing. "I wish we had that much power," said Lara Mahaney, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles-based group. Indeed, these people want the power to censor what everybody else watches. Short of that, they'll just fondle the political system to get what they want.
