FCC To Consider Relaxing ‘Indecency’ Standards

FCC - Federal Censorship Commission - image by Andrew M CaseThe Federal Communications Commission issued a public notice on Monday, April 1st, asking for public feedback on a proposal to relax so-called indecency standards. Family groups like the Christian conservative group, American Family Association (AFA), have stretched the facts in response. According to the AFA, “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.”
