"Is this what you intended to accomplish with your careers?" Senator Robert Dole asked Time Warner executives last week.
"You have sold your souls, but must you corrupt our nation and threaten our children as well?"
At Time Warner, however, such questions are simply the latest manifestation of the soul-searching that has involved the company ever since the company was born in 1990.
It's a self-examination that has, at various times, involved issues of responsibility, creative freedom and the corporate bottom line.
参议员罗伯特·多尔上星期质问时代华纳公司高级人员时说:“难道这就是你们要成就的事业吗?你们已经出卖了自己的灵魂,难道你们还非要腐化我们的国家,威胁我们的孩子不成?”不过,对于成立于1990年的时代华纳公司而言,
这样的质问仅仅只是公司自我反思的最新表白,是在不同时期涉及责任、创作自由和公司底线问题的自我反省。

The flap over rap is not making life any easier for him. Levin has consistently defended the company's rap music on the grounds of expression.

In 1992, when Time Warner was under fire for releasing Ice-T's violent rap song Cop Killer, Levin described rap as lawful expression of street culture, which deserves an outlet.
1992年公司因出品Ice-T乐队狂暴的说唱歌曲《警察杀手》后备受谴责时,莱文说这是街头文化的合法表达方式,它应该有自己的宣泄途径。
"The test of any democratic society," he wrote in a Wall Street Journal column, "lies not in how well it can control expression but in whether it gives freedom of thought and expression the widest possible latitude, however disputable or irritating the results may sometimes be. We won't retreat in the face of any threats."
他在《华尔街日报》一篇专栏文章中写道:“任何一个民主社会的检验不在于它能多有效地控制各种情感的表达,而在于是否给予了人们思考和表达的最广泛的自由,尽管有时这种结果会引起争论和愤怒。我们不会在任何威胁面前退却。”

The 15-member Time Warner board is generally supportive of Levin and his corporate strategy.
总的来说,时代华纳公司的15位董事是支持莱文和公司的经营策略的。
But insiders say several of them have shown their concerns in this matter.
但内部人士透露其中几位对此事表示担忧。
"Some of us have known for many, many years that the freedoms under the First Amendment are not totally unlimited," says Luce.
“我们中的一些人多年来就知道宪法第一修正案所说的自由并非毫无限制,”鲁斯说,
"I think it is perhaps the case that some people associated with the company have only recently come to realize this."
“我想与公司有关系的一些人可能是最近才意识到这一点。”

At that time, the theory goes, Antarctica was ice-free and forested, with internal seaways covering low-lying areas, when the climate got colder, glaciers formed in the interior of the continent and then advanced across the seaways, sweeping plankton and pollen into the mountains.
