Pursuing the Robertson Fatwah could have unintended consequences
Edited on Wed Aug-24-05 07:22 AM by SoCalDem
What he did was outrageous and stupid..not to mention dangerous to Americans living in Venezuela, BUT

An issue like this that looks good for US, could be the entry into cable networks that the FCC would love to have. Currently, they have little or no power over cable and satellite, but if they used this issue (pushed by US) as a way to get control over content, we might regret it down the road.

Once they are invited in, they will never leave :(

There are actually some decent shows on cable..and where we would least expect it.. Rescue Me .....It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia...Starved...The Shield....Teachers...Newsroom...

(none of these are on HBO/Showtime)..All of these shows are very adult and politically savvy..

I would hate to trade them in order to smack down Robertson
