Saving the First Amendment

My suspicions were correct; numerous ABC affiliates, including WTAE here in Pittsburgh, will not broadcast "Saving Private Ryan" tonight because of its graphic content. (Apparently, people swear a lot when they are at war, and they sometimes get shot.) The stations' corporate ownership say they fear FCC fines, even though the prominent head of a conservative media watchdog group has promised not to file complaints.

I have a conspiracy theory about this--that the stations are trying to embarrass the FCC by refusing to show a popular, patriotic movie on Veterans Day.
