Senate Commerce Committee Hearing on the Future of the Children's Television Act:

Senator Rockefeller opened the hearing (with no other Senators in their seats) saying he intended not be too aggressive in the hearing because he tried that before and discovered that the others on the Committee felt there were First Amendment issues at stake. Rockefeller said he was very concerned about violence and other challenging content (not sure how this jibes with the focus on educational programming mandates).
