The FCC Fights to Keep Our Airwaves Clean

by Staff
March 25, 2008

WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Today, the U.S. Supreme Court has granted certiorari in the Fox v. FCC case in which broadcasters are challenging a policy by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to crackdown on broadcast indecency.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) is pleased that the FCC is working attentively to make sure our airwaves are clear of indecent material. We are glad that this case will go before the Supreme Court for judicial review. Our only hope is that the justices will recognize the need to protect our children from profane and indecent language and overturn the lower court's decision. Even a single use of the "F-word" should be subject to a fine from the FCC.

Shari Rendall, Director of Legislation and Public Policy, said, "We applaud the Supreme Court's decision to review this case, and we are very pleased that the FCC and this Administration are working so hard to protect our children from broadcast smut. We hope that Congress will act as well to reaffirm that a single use of the 'F-word' may be considered indecent by bringing S. 1780, Protecting Children From Indecent Programming Act, to the floor for a vote.

Mario Diaz, Esq., Policy Director for Legal Issues, also noted that, "We are thrilled that the Supreme Court will hear arguments in this case. Under the Administrative Procedure Act, the Second Circuit was supposed to give great deference to the FCC's determination that even a single use of the 'F-word' was not appropriate for children to be exposed to because of its plain vulgarity and inescapably sexual connotation. The Second Circuit ignored the FCC's determination and substituted its own belief, a move which clearly runs contrary to the rule of law."

Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
