As expected, President BUSH signed the new broadcast indecency bill into law THURSDAY. The new law increases the maximum fine for indecency to $325,000 per violation, a tenfold increase.
The NAB's response, via spokesperson DENNIS WHARTON: "In issues related to programming content, NAB believes responsible self-regulation is preferable to government regulation. If there is regulation, it should be applied equally to cable and satellite TV, and satellite radio."
