Skip to comments.FCC May Allow 'Brief' Nudity, More Cursing on Broadcast TV
Posted on 04/05/2013 3:53:18 AM PDT by markomalley
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is considering whether to loosen restrictions for obscenity on broadcast television and radio. This rule change would allow brief non-sexual-nudity and isolated expletives in prime time, while children are still awake and watching TV.
The FCC claims that it will consider the publics sentiment as its members make a decision and has given Americans the month of April to file their comments.
Outgoing FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski previously had to order the Enforcement Bureau only to tackle egregious cases because of the backlog of reported obscenity cases. In the last 6 months, the FCCs caseload has plummeted 70 percent, with more than one million complaints ignored.

Old wise Arab saying: Do not allow a camel to put his nose under the edge of your tent, or soon you will have a camel in your tent.
Another step on the road to Perdition.
Lord quickly come.
Then maybe we can all take a peak at Ms. Judd’s tits?
This is the real race to the bottom.
With what’s available online and in a lot of video games these days most kids will probably yawn at a few boobs and bums here and there on tv.Having said that,it’s still a little further down the slope we slide.The god of this world gets to isolate christians just that little more,always pushing.
Oh good. I was just saying the other day that this world needs a lot more cursing - people these days are just too straight-laced.
I thought we already had that.
That’s a great phrase. Yeah, more nudity and cursing, that’s exactly what our culture needs.
Better they should start banning the sadism and cruelty that masquerades as cop shows and “prank” shows.
Well, I came real close to giving up satellite TV two months ago.
The day is coming soon when I will rescue my TV from the aggressive onslaught on the TV.
FCC is basically saying ‘we get too many complaints to investigate, so we want to just allow a lot of it.’
In other parts of Washington, various agencies are INCREASING their numbers of regulations and reporting requirements. Will they eventually hide their heads in the ground, too?
This shows the endemic problem with government and governmental regulations. They eventually become so massive that they crumble under their own weight. How many regulations are still on the books regarding, for example, buggy whips?
Ow! My Balls!
Idiocracy is prediction.
“FCC May Allow ‘Brief’ Nudity, More Cursing on Broadcast TV”
The glass is already full, now they call the overflow, “Brief”, how will “Brief” be defined?
I remember network executives hyping this stuff 20 years ago. What we got was an all too long screen shot of Sipowitz’s bare ass.
They already allow “bitch.” “Shit” has been used in plenty of shows without censor (i.e. South Park). “Damn” can be used, but they bleep the word “God” if used in the same phrase. No problem with “ass,” but the “hole” is bleeped if used. Most shows will bleep the F-word, but we all know what they’re saying.
We’ve relaxed sin to a point that it’s universally accepted. Adding some nudity to Nickelodeon shows might keep the parents tuned in.
(Hoping I don’t need a /sarc)
If that happens - what will HBO do? - the levels that our society is dropping is staggering...
Too bad the FCC never outlawed stupidity on TV.
