I hope that the FCC will maintain traditional anti-obscenity and decency standards on the radio and television free public airwaves. People opposed to obscenity, especially children, should be protected as they listen to free public radio and television stations.
At the same time, if a celebrity shows indecent behavior or obscenity on a live broadcast, I don't believe networks and television stations should be penalized by the FCC. But the celebrity responsible should be issued a stiff fine.
