Groups Urge Senate Not To Turn The Justice Department Into Hollywood's Private Police Force
from the bad,-bad,-bad-ideas dept
It's difficult to see why taxpayers should be paying FBI agents to protect one industry's obsolete business model.
A bunch of special interest groups made that argument to Senators this week, noting that it was a pure gift to Hollywood -- pointing out that all of the companies and groups in the industry already have their own enforcement arms, and it made little sense to have the FBI take part in private business disputes. Hopefully, there are still enough Senators who haven't been convinced by the propaganda provided by the entertainment industry on this issue to recognize what's actually at stake here.
