    I'm sure they'd like to find any angle they can to lay into Democrats, especially something like their cozy relationship with Hollywood, but this isn't a group they can afford to dump on like the unions -- the same companies own cable and broadcast news.

    So instead of snubbing them, the Republicans will no doubt repackage the failed SOPA verbiage inside the "save the children from the Internet" bill they're working on.

      Exactly, and it is important to remember that Chris Dodd made his infamous threats about money for legislation on none other than Fox, who are not exactly known for the their support of Democrats.

      To me the entire episode is disgusting.  But the answer is to GRILL your local candidates, and press a commitment from those you will vote for to oppose all future SOPA-like proposals.
