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
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it is considering dropping current broadcast decency standards that ban explicit profanity and “non-sexual” nudity.

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.
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:
