Fox To FCC: Get Out Of Indecency Regulation

As other broadcasters urged the FCC to ease up on indecency regulations, Fox urged it to quit regulating broadcast indecency altogether. “Fox urges the commission to conclude it is legally required and logically bound to cease attempting broadcast indecency limits once and for all,” Fox Entertainment Group and Fox Television Holdings said in a filing Wednesday. “Time and technology have moved inexorably forward, but the commission’s untenable effort to define indecent content through a hodgepodge of inconsistent and uneven rulings remain stuck in a bygone era.”
