McCain Suggests Gore Goes Too Far

In a surprising reply to Al Gore's latest get-tough-on-Hollywood stance, Senator John McCain, a longtime critic of the film industry said Sunday that he is wary of Gore's proposals.

Speaking on ABC's This Week, McCain conceded that he doesn't know what the best means may be to deal with sex and violence in entertainment. He added, "I'm reluctant right now to say I'm ready to pass some kind of law that imposes some sort of censorship on the industry." He added that before any such law is passed, "we'd better make very sure where this all leads."
