DAMN!! I have to being my day agreeing with a government agency?!?

Well, when you're right you're right and I'll admit you're right

The biggest problem I see is that most people don't really care. They don't care if there's some dirty language and they don't care enough to give their opinion to the FCC.

But then there's that VERY small part of the population that gets their panties in a twist and they're the ones that take the time write in to the FCC and give their opinion. If only they spent as much time monitoring their kids' viewing activities as they did into biatching about it on the internet, they might not ever have to worry about their precious snowflakes accidentally seeing Janet Jackson's nipple.

And in an Opinion piece for FoxNews.com last week, Penny Young Nance - who most recently served as President of Nance and Associates and as Special Adviser for the FCC - stated that it was "unfathomable to think the FCC actually wants to allow more filth, such as frontal female nudity, the F-bomb, and the 'S' word on broadcast television during hours when our kids will be watching and listening."

Referring to nudity as "filth" - I think that says it all about these idiots.

To what end does the FCC want to increase the amount of profanity and sex during children's shows?

OTOH, this does seem to open up a business chance for a "safe" children's channel. I suppose it will be Sprout and Disney, though, so maybe not as much business opportunity as I'd expected.

F*ck any sort of decency code right in the ear.  Yes, I understand the tepid irony of that statement while having to censor myself.

I found it amusing they call the superbowl a family show.

Every farking superbowl party I've ever been too, the kids are somewhere else. From when I was a kid and playing outside while the adults acted like morons inside, to just last year when I got to act like a moron while my kids played on the Xbox downstairs....I can honestly say that I've NEVER seen kids around when its on.

I think this is a response to the FCC finding out that 90% of all the TV complaints come from a few specific watchdog groups.

No the only worry is with frontal female nudity.  Think about it: What about those infants who are compelled to suck on their own mother's tits in order to live?  First they are sexually abused by their mothers, then they have to be reminded of it by seeing tits on tv?

Most men don't look at nude women for the art's sake. Anyone who defends nudity so they can see Andy Sipowicz's naked ass is prurient and close to legally blind.

Just admit that you want to see naked chicks bounce across your big screen TV because you like giving your new brain a rest while the old brain stem takes over for a while. It's not about art; it's about boner. Or boner later.

FTFA: "But if there is a silver lining to be found in the proposed changes, Jim Steyer, CEO and Founder of Common Sense Media - an organization that seeks to provide families with trustworthy information and education - said the changes could encourage parents to be more aware of what their kids are watching."

Wait, you mean parents are going to have to actually parent?  Well fark that, that's what the TV is for.
 
2013-05-22 10:04:56 AM
"Today's television programming already goes well beyond the content parameters most parents find acceptable. No parent, after watching a program with their children says, 'you know, that sure would have been a better program if they'd only thrown some nudity and profanity in there,'" said Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis at the American Family Association.


You are correct, Bryan from the AFA, no parent says that. If there is too much violence or T&A in a program this parent watches with his children, I say "We aren't watching that anymore". Problem solved.[1]


1. Of course, I then set it to record on my man-cave DVR, because I dig T&A.
 
2013-05-22 10:06:49 AM
Just another way big government is screwing over the working man.  If they are going to put more sex and violence on during children's programing then the average working Joe is going to have to pay for DVR so not to miss anything.

Given the popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey maybe programmers could boost ratings by having better mommy TV in the afternoon.  Judge Judy could have a buxom bailiff meet out some light corporal punishment

Since my daughter had her own tv, it didn't matter what was being aired on adult themed shows, because her tv was strictly tuned to one of the 10 or so Nick channels until she was damn near 17 years old.

Why bother- with all the adverts and logos on the screen during on-air programs, I usually rent a video. I want to see the program as it was intended to be viewed, not obstructed with network rubbish, upcoming show information, time and temp, etc. And how does carrying full length commercials serve the community which the station is licensed?  Now that is obscenity.

Paraphrasing Stan Freeburg- "Profit never needs a reason".

as a nudist, i wholeheartedly agree. nudity =/= filth. heck, SEX =/= always equal filth...but i completely understand not wanting a young 'en to see porn, and  such. but non-sexual nudity, my kids see that all the time at home, and they aren't going to need money for psych counselling.

First thing I think of every single time. MAY be nsfw...certainly got me a hand slapping when I posted the actual pic in a thread a while back.
 
2013-05-22 10:26:58 AM
Forget the kids. I get sick of every program having to push the envelope because "it's edgy."

Watched Survivor for exactly one episode this year. The word biatch was used every other word. Hell's Kitchen, the dialogue is exactly, "BEEP BEEP biatch ASS BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP biatch! YOU DON'T KNOW BEEEEEEP BEEP biatch.'

Oh well, I shouldn't be watching TV anyway, and neither should my kids.
 
2013-05-22 10:28:35 AM
I suggest a compromise: prior to 10 pm, TV is censored to the satisfaction of folks like the AFA and Helen Lovejoy. No nudity, no dirty language and no freaking murders or violence.

After 10 pm, no censorship. Porn, rated R movies, whatever. Everyone is happy. Helen Lovejoy can make her kids stop watching TV at 10 because she'd know there was nothing objectional on prior to that and the rest of us can watch our adult content without finding any strangers in the alps after 10.

/personally I'm for completely removing government from the process of censoring media but I'm also realistic enough to know that ain't happening
//have kids, they only watch what I let them watch, parent censorship good, government censorship bad

 The Middle is probably the closest thing to the old TGIF sitcoms. Parks and Rec is mostly pretty wholesome, but does go a bit blue here and there.

I should have pointed out that her satellite receiver had every channel available on it as every other one in the house.

The strict tuning to lighter kids fare, was entirely of her choosing.
