The FCC: The Agency that Fined Me?

February 9, 2005 at 6:00 pm Leave a comment

Reuters reports that the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) will rule that the motion picture “Saving Private Ryan” is not indecent. The FCC had received several complaints about networks airing the film since the film contains violence and adult language. On Monday, the FCC also rejected complaints lodged against the “Simpsons,” “Friends,” and broadcasts of the film “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.” Under federal law, the FCC can regulate what is distributed over broadcast television and the Commission has been increasingly active in regulating content since Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” during the halftime show during last year’s Super Bowl. This latest batch of rulings may be a sign that the Commission will ease up on policing morality now that the agency will be under new leadership.
