Do you think the FCC controls how much sex and violence is shown on TV enough or not enough?

In todays SexIs article, FCC You! —Language Restrictions on Sitcoms Lighten Up
by ErinORiordan, Erin says "Polls say Americans want the FCC to more strictly control sex and violence on TV, but ratings show few are changing the channel to avoid racy or violent content."

I'm anti-FCC. I don't think anyone should decide what is and what is not acceptable on television or the radio for that matter.

They should definitely be given a shake down though. Corporate interest has been too big of a controlling factor for years!

Why do radio stations get suckier? Ask the FCC
If you think your cable provider hold a monopoly? Ask the FCC

As for decency laws, get rid of them. I really think people have the ability to turn off the TV even more nowadays.

I think that it is not up to the fcc what we allow our kids to watch. And last time I checked, I was old enough to make my own decisions.

I agree.

It doesn't seem like they really do much anyway. Why do we still have them? And are our tax dollars going for this?

I don't think they keep a good balance. There's too much violence on TV for my tastes, while the public is afraid of sex and nudity.

I really think parents or I should say adults should decide what they think is too much violence. I have worked with gruesome issues so I have no problems with a lot of things that others find too bad for TV. I could go on but I will stop. I have been to other countries which have a ton less violence than we do and they are not censored at all they just live by values.

I think the level of violence shown on tv is way too high.
It seems the FCC is afraid of the naked body & relationships, but has a very close friendship with guns & wars.

From what I've seen, you can pretty much see a naked body on satellite channels. I thnk they do a shitty job of limiting the sex. I also know that people rarely avoid it. I however, quit watching every channel except the kids channels and lifetime because of the extreme sex and violence. Seriously, I don't need to see naked people on every commercial. It will not make me buy a bra if there's a naked person in it. I think people could do their part though. If it's truly offensive, you won't watch it. I don't. It wasn't at all hard to do. I don't watch those channels that have bad language like G.D. I don't want to hear extreme language and I don't want to see sex and violence on everything. More importantly, I want to be a GOOD role model for my kids.

Easy to find proof that the whole affair is completely borked:

You can flip to any channel and find someone being killed brutally, but on another if someone says so much as 'crap', there will be a massive outcry about it.

Frankly I despise television for everything except the Food Network and hockey.

And people on radio should be allowed to swear, dammit. Especially for songs; bleeping out an utterly common swear makes me angry enough to eat my steering wheel.
