FCC considering allowing the F Bomb and Female Nudity...

What are your thoughts on this? They are considering this even during hours they are aware that children will be viewing TV program. I am wondering what is happening in society that they think this is ok. There are enough problems our kids are dealing with that they do not need to see this in the context of tv shows now being produced.


FCC set to drop ban on f-word, nudity on television and radio stations nationwide

They are seeking public comments; make your voice count!

April 8, 2013

Dear Member,

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it is considering dropping current broadcast decency standards that ban explicit profanity and “non-sexual” nudity.
You can read the press release from the FCC here.
Specifically, if enacted, the new FCC policy would allow network television and local radio stations to air the f-word, the s-word and to allow programs to show frontal female nudity, even during hours when they know children will be watching and listening.
It is accepting comments on the proposal from the viewing public until the end of April.
Current broadcast decency law prohibits expletives and nudity, even if brief or “fleeting.” The Supreme Court has upheld the law as constitutionally enforceable by the FCC, despite lawsuit attempts by networks NBC and FOX to overturn it.
TAKE ACTION
Submit your comments to the FCC, urging it to reject any changes to the current policy.
The FCC will not accept general email comments. To be valid, you are required to file a formal comment via the FCC’s website.
Please follow these instruction carefully, to insure your comment is accepted by the FCC:
1. Go to http://outbound3.afa.net/link.php?M=106758&N=1201&L=2928&F=H.
2. Enter the code “13-86” in the “Proceeding Number” box and fill out the few remaining required fields.
3. Enter your comment in the text box provided and click “Continue.”
4. From there, review your comment and click “Confirm.”

I have no problem with it, tv isn't a mainstay of my home. In fact...we really only use it to watch youtube videos and stuff we stream anyways...what networks have on is irrelevant to me.

I think parents need to take responsibility for their childrens viewing/listening habits, not the government.

From original article.

Current broadcast decency law prohibits expletives and nudity, even if brief or "fleeting." The Supreme Court has upheld the law as constitutionally enforceable by the FCC, despite lawsuit attempts by networks NBC and FOX to overturn it.

There is the rub, the country has decided what we will move as far away from Decency as possible.

 I don't believe im censorship or so called 'decency laws'. It's up the PARENTS to manage what their children see, hear and do.

Here's a solution that has worked really well in our home: turn off the TV.

The only person who really watches TV is the hubs-

Yet they show people being horribly murdered, raped, & gore?

I'd rather see a naked woman than a bloody body mauled by dogs (Bones episode)
