While I agree with the sentiment, this just seems like something the Senate shouldn’t be dealing with right now.
WASHINGTON – Legislation to turn down the volume on those loud TV commercials that send couch potatoes diving for their remote controls looks like it’ll soon become law.
The Senate unanimously passed a bill late Wednesday to require television stations and cable companies to keep commercials at the same volume as the programs they interrupt.
By the way, if the Republicans control Congress after the election, expect this sort of thing to be the only kind of legislation that passes. Cellphones for Neighborhood Watch, midnight basketball, school uniforms. Big ideas.
Anyway, good. No more loud commercials.
