Wasted money by radio stations

http://www.wired.com/news/digiwood/0...w=wn_tophead_1

When reading this, I was like, hum ok that doesn't surprise me... but then, I realized something...

Why would the FCC fine a radio station for somebody else's obscenity? Why do they need to buy costly system to protect themselves? Fuck it's not their fault if bad words are said live...

And of course, what does it really matters? OH NO, while listening radio, your kids will hear a bad word or two! BUT IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN EVEN IF HE'S NOT ALLOWED TO LISTEN TO RADIO!!! And he's going to see worse things in his life anyways (like goatse).

Stupid soccer mom & christian fanatics BS.

Wasted money...

If you don't mind me suggesting, I feel the FCC takes things way too far and I believe they have financial interests they try to satisfy by exploiting some of their "laws" on us. This organization's power is bordering along the lines of being considered unconstitutional. What's their basic purpose in the first place?

Their basic purpose is to regulate the use of the public resource termed airwaves. They grant licences and determine broadcast power modulation type and frequencies allocated by these licences. They set aside some frequencies for free use at limited power(bluetooth etc) restrict some to government use etc.
They also have the power to enforce community decency standards with fines or revocation of licence and reasignment of the frequencies the offender forfeited by compliance failure.

OK, so for the most part if the FCC follows exactly what you described to me, then they seem like a legitimate organization although I feel they're taking decency and fines a bit too far. Why fine so much money and what do they do with it? Do they line their own pockets or something?

Way to be a typical fucking atheist.

And I don't care if I'm Christian (and I'm really not practicing at this point anyways), you don't pick people out of the crowd like that.

So go fuck yourself.

You are just seeing the backlash caused by their not levying fines for too long. I like seeing naked women. Lots of naked women doing nasty things. But some people believe that they should be able to watch a sports event with their families without graphic simulated sex and forcible disrobing.
Some people don't want to have to explain to thier 6 year old why that man is laughing while castrating a pig on air.

The challenge used to be so if you don't want to watch that kind of thing then don't. But when you are constantly getting ambushed and can not set any standards for your family without completely disconecting all forms of communications then fines need to be stringently levied for awhile till the morons start excercising some self control again.

OK, I see your point.

I don't mind the FCC limiting what can be shown on national TV, but I think they should fine the creator of the illegal content, not the network themselves. (IE, fine Janet Jackson or that stupid fucktard who swore on a talkshow)

u know whats funny is when oprah winfrey had a show where they went into detail on anal and oral sex techniques, and many complaints were logged, they stated that they couldnt fine her because she was "beloved"

shows how much the FCC cares about our children


also when i have kids, im not gonna censor what they hear, because i think thats worse than actually letting them hear it, this is america after all, were not communist russia

it's a somewhat valid point about oprah except the context was different.

There is a difference between 'And then I shoved my cock down her throat and blew a load so big it shot our of her ass'

And "At a rainbow party the girls all use a different lipstick and leave colored rings on the guys penis and this is what your teen may be up to"


There is a difference between arresting Lenny Bruce for profanity in a private club that people paid money to see his act knowing full well that he would venture into some bitchin comedy gold that included foul language and ideas, and fining an asshole that has been warned and a station that has been warned a score of times.

One is censorship. The other is justice.

One of the main points in the FCC broadcast licence test I took was who was responsible for the content. Guess what? If I am the tech down in the basement running the transmitter I can be fined the same amount as the asshole on the air and the assholes that let him push the limit.\


It's so sad that today no one wants to be responsible and wants to push it off on someone else. And certain elements of the political spectrum have been passing laws for the last 20 years backing that idiocy up.

television sets are sold with v-chips installed, and programming is encoded with rating information. why dont radios start to offer the same? and if v-chips are so prevelent in the market why not allow programming with higher ratings on the air?

if uptight people dont want their children to see something - lock down the set with a v-chip. problem solved.
there are tools there to block programming. the only problem is ignorance.

At one time, if your child was playing with the "bad" kid in school, you told him not to do it anymore because hes a bad influence. If you had gone ot the principal and said "that bad kid from across the tracks is playing with my son, and i dont want him to anymore" The principal would probably say "Well ma'am, unless they fight there isnt much i can do"

Fast forward 50+ years. Now the parent skips the principal so to speak, and goes straight to the gov. telling them that its having a negative impact on their child.

Rearing children is not the job of the gov. If you don't want your child to watch a certain show, or watch tv at a certain time, turn it.

Commonly, the argument for government censorship is that many parents work long hours and simply arent home. In that case, the child should be with a baby sitter if he is to young. If he's old enough that he doesn't need one, chances are he already knows more about the subject than anything on MTV could teach him. Censor MTV, and you still have the children he goes to school with, that, when older will dress like britney spears, and some will talk like a drunken sailor. There is no bubble that will protect children today.
Does that mean channel 4 should have hardcore porn? No, but howard stern as an example is not hurting anybody. Besides, how many kids actually listen to the radio nowadays anyways?
