Powell: FCC Has To Step In On Broadcast Indecency Complaints

FCC Chairman Michael Powell says chill. Take a breath. “We are not the federal Bureau of Indecency. We do not watch or listen to programs hoping to catch purveyors of dirty broadcasts. Instead, we rely on public complaints to point out potentially indecent shows. In recent years, complaints about television and radio broadcasts have skyrocketed, and the F.C.C. has stepped up its enforcement in response.”
