More regulatory fun: The Washington

  • More regulatory fun: The Washington Post reports that “New FCC Members Send Clear Signal On Indecency.” And that signal is “clean up your act and document it.” The two commissioners, one Republican and one Dem, are advising the radio industry to keep recordings or transcripts on air personalities about whom they receive listener complaints–ostensibly so that the FCC can more easily determine the merit of listener complaints to the FCC.

    Frankly, I’m not sure what to think of this. I have little respect for the crass mysogynistic gutter-talk that the likes of Mancow and Stern now resort to, but I also see the tremendous potential to use this weapon against independent and community stations that challenge the status quo for the sake of progressive change rather than giggles and titilation.
