Cursing and Nudity on TV Networks? Maybe
We know it’s pretty much no holds barred for vulgar language and nudity on HBO and Showtime. There is a chance we may hear expletives and see nudity on ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC.
The Supreme Court is now hearing arguments that the Federal Communications Commission should have the right to fine “over-the -air” TV stations for airing program content that contains language that the late, great George Carlin would have loved. As far as I’m concerned, it’s all about the kids. Would you want your child viewing an explicit bedroom encounter? I think it’s pretty cut and dry now. You can lock out a cable channel that airs adult content. If the basic channels started broadcasting “blue” material, you could lock specific shows, but as we know, kids are very crafty. Sooner or later, certainly sooner, they would see or hear something that they shouldn’t be seeing or hearing. I’d be interested to hear your thoughts. http://www.npr.org/2012/01/10/144931289/supreme-court-to-consider-fcc-indecency-case
