    IN FIVE MONTHS THE CALM ACT WILL GO INTO EFFECT

    Edited on Sun Jul-24-11 04:02 PM by Cetacea
    Spiking of TV advertisement volume is the most popular complaint to the FCC.

    I believe that this bill is in part a symbolic Italian finger gesture aimed at Reagan and his minions.

    Older article on the bill's creation:

    http://www.watchsonomacounty.com/2010/12/washington/tur... /



    snip: " Credit the congressman’s first-hand experience with the problem for what is now being touted as the solution: the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act, or CALM.

    President Barack Obama last week signed the new law, which was based on legislation authored by Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Menlo Park, and co-sponsored by Thompson.

    Thompson said he and Eshoo “conspired” to draft the bill as they sat with one another in House chambers and discussed their irritation with the ads, the source of frequent constituent complaints.

    Eshoo told the Wall Street Journal that the bill was the most popular she has pushed in her 18 years in Congress.

    “If I’d saved 50 million children from some malady, people would not have the interest that they have in this,” she said.

    The law requires the FCC to limit the volume of audio on commercials transmitted by TV broadcast stations, cable operators and other multichannel video programming distributors..."

    THANKS FOR READING THIS.

    4. Now if they could eliminate the splashing ads for other shows in the corners

    of the cable channels tempers would flare much less. And they're getting bolder and more irritating while they interrupt shows that are already on. Gah!
    This is why we elected these people, to regulate the volume on our TV's
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
