Bush was trying to politically influence studio programming, by getting executives to voluntarily make a commitment to certain types of programming. I believe the Xindi plot on ENTERPRISE, was a result.

Could be, CBS lobbied Bush really hard to expand FCC rules and in return refused to air a commercial critical of Bush during the 2004 Superbowl. But all the back rubbing went on DURING the Xindi War story. Who knows.
