NEWS:  The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it is considering dropping current broadcast decency standards that ban explicit profanity and "non-sexual" nudity.   Specifically, if enacted, the new FCC policy would allow network television and local radio stations to air the f-word, the s-word and to allow programs to show frontal female nudity, even during hours when they know children will be watching and listening.

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT:  The FCC is accepting comments on this proposal from the viewing public until the end of April.  So, you can contact the FCC and let them know you want them to NOT lower/abandon the standards against expletives and nudity.  Click here to visit the FCC site to comment.  Once on the FCC comment site, enter the code "13-86" in the "Proceeding Number" box and fill out the few remaining required fields.  You can then enter your comments in the text box then click "Continue" and finally "Confirm."
