Penn and Teller on the FCC

Someone just put up on YouTube a great Penn and Teller riff about the FCC (looks like it might have actually been around for a while, given the reference to an FCC statement from 2004, but it’s new to me), and why there’s no need for them to regulate the internet, or even, any more, radio and television. The star of the piece, though, is the Thomas Jefferson quote graffitied in the background. I’m not a libertarian. I think that there is a role for government, but I also agree with Penn and Teller that we’re way beyond that.

The piece is short and well worth watching. What do you think?
