Sensenbrenner: no to cable-content regs

House Judiciary Committee chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) said Monday that cable technology that allows parents to block inappropriate content for children was a better remedy than government regulation.

Sensenbrenner, addressing a National Show luncheon with Rep. Anna Eschoo (D-Calif.), said he came away impressed with parental-control technology he saw demonstrated on the convention floor earlier in the day.

“Pushing the proper button on the remote when something that the parent determines is inappropriate for the kids to see is a far better way of teaching the kids good values than having the government trying to set the standards, whether it’s judicially set or it’s set by regulation or whether it’s set legislatively,” Sensenbrenner said.
