According to the American Civil Liberties Union, censorship would shut out parents from deciding what television programming is acceptable for their children, and giving that right to bureaucrats and to executives. In June1996, the Supreme Court rules out a censorship law during the case Alliance for Community Media vs. Federal Communications Commission. Where this Commission attempted to use cable operat
