FCC Chairman makes his wife happy

It finally happened! The FCC has come down hard on the boogey man that no one else was willing to stand up to. The dreaded loud TV commercial.

"This is an issue people care about. My wife has wondered for years when we were going to do something about this," said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski during a meeting Tuesday. "Bottom line, the FCC is quieting a persistent problem of the TV age, or loud commercials."

Well if just one man gets a little more peace at home from this, I guess the additional government regulation was worth it.

During their mandated spot checks for compliance (there’s a new job created right there!), what is the criteria for the commercial being louder than the program? What if it’s a commercial for Independence Day comes on during after a hushed Tiger Woods putt?
