FCC Obscenity Complaints Down Dramatically

Complaints to the FCC about obscenity on TV and radio in the US were down dramatically in the last quarter of 2004. “FCC officials attributed the marked drop — which saw complaints plummet from 317,833 to 157,650 from one quarter to the next — to the end of e-mail and write-in campaigns aimed at certain television and radio stations. The report did not identify which organizations were behind the campaigns or which broadcasters were targeted.”
