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.

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.
