Regulation of Obscenity, Indecency and Profanity
It is a violation of federal law to air obscene programming at any time. It is also a violation of federal law to broadcast indecent or profane programming during certain hours. (See definitions}. Congress has given the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the responsibility for administratively enforcing the law that governs these types of broadcasts. The FCC has authority to issue civil monetary penalties, revoke a license or deny a renewal application. In addition, violators of the law, if convicted in a federal district court, are subject to criminal fines and/or imprisonment for not more than two years.

The FCC vigorously enforces this law where we find violations. In 2004 alone, the FCC took action in 12 cases, involving hundreds of thousands of complaints, assessing penalties and voluntary payments totaling approximately $8,000,000. The Commission has also toughened its enforcement penalties by proposing monetary penalties based on each indecent utterance in a broadcast, rather than proposing a single monetary penalty for the entire broadcast.

At the same time, however, the Commission is careful of First Amendment protections and the prohibitions on censorship and interference with broadcasters' freedom of speech. The FCC has denied complaints in cases in which we determined the broadcast was not indecent based on the overall context of the programming. Regardless of the outcome, the FCC strives to address every complaint within 9 months of its receipt.

How to File a Complaint


Complaints may be filed via:

* Electronic Complaint Form for Broadcast (TV and Radio), Cable and Satellite Issues
* U.S. Mail sent to:

FCC
Enforcement Bureau, Investigations and Hearings Division
445 12th Street, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20554

* Electronic Mail at fccinfo@fcc.gov
* Toll Free: 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322); 1-888-TELL-FCC (1-888-835-5322) TTY
* Fax: 1-866-418-0232



You can help us resolve your complaint more quickly by providing as much of the following information as possible: (1) the date and time the material was aired; (2) the call sign, channel, or frequency of the station; (3) the city and state where the program was viewed; and (4) as many details as possible about the content of the broadcast to help the FCC determine whether the material was obscene, profane, or indecent. You may support your allegations by a full or partial tape or transcript, or by providing a significant excerpt, but these are not required. The key is to provide enough information for staff to determine both the specific content of the complained-of material and the context in which it was broadcast. It is also helpful to include your address, e-mail and phone numbers.

If you choose to submit a recording, you should send the recording to Federal Communications Commission, Investigations & Hearings Division/Enforcement Bureau, 9300 East Hampton Drive, Capital Heights, MD 20743. Any documentation of the programming becomes part of the Commission's records and cannot be returned.

3. I don't even know what the hell that means!
But, the guy is obviously an idiot anyway. He probably doesn't know what it means either. Perhaps he meant "choking"?

37. he was mangling a Purdue chicken slogan from what i understand
no idea why.

I think he meant to say "plucking", as it makes total sense in this context. I think the "f" just slipped out by accident.

4. Come On - You Know He'll Say He Distinctly Said "Keep Plucking.......
that chicken". (sarcasm)

The fact that his female co-anchor cringed and bug-eyed when she heard it has nothing to do with what he actually said.

43. I think the rule is if it sounds like profanity, then it was.
Sometimes a cigar is more than a cigar.

26. Obviously not a Will Ferrell fan. Envirobat referenced "Anchorman"
In which Ferrell would sign-off with "stay classy, San Diego."

His co-anchor, knowing that he'd say exactly what was on the telepromter
sabotaged him by having a different sign-off put there.


Not Safe For Work.

15. Too damn funny
No way in hell I'm going to ever join Focus on the Family mass emailing bitch and moan to the FTC about some guy saying a bad word on the air.

Personally I don't think the word fuck is used to it's full effect on television, it's such a versatile word. That being said, I have no idea how keep fucking that chicken has any meaning whatsoever.

17. am I the only one here who understands the meaning of the term?
not that I'm proud of knowing, mind you, but its in reference to an old joke, the setup of which I've forgotten, but the meaning of the term is akin to "you keep beating that dead horse"

in context, the weatherman was trying to make bad weather sound good, and the anchorman was sayin he could keep doing that all he wants, but the weather is still bad.

33. This is subject to the power of suggestion. I've reviewed this several times.
Sometimes I hear Flucking. Other times I hear fucking. But what I can indisputably say is that regardless of which way I hear it. The word begins with F and ends with ucking. Sometimes the L is there and some times it's not. So I have to write that off to power of suggestion.

Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 01:08 PM by Seldona
That was priceless. I listened three times, and cleaned it up a bit, and all I can clearly hear is 'Keep fuckin that chicken.'

Has he resigned? Well, it is Faux.

Although it did sound like fucking, and obviously his co-anchor thought so too...

44. That phrase has been around for years.
"Keep f*kin the chicken" is the punchline to a joke that kids have been passing around for quite a while. According to the joke, it is the real meaning of the acronym KFC. This is obviously what Anastos had in mind when he said it, though I'm sure he himself can't believe he actually said it out loud.
