If man on animal sex (horse masturbation) jokes on a public CSPAN broadcast aren’t indecency, what is?
(UPDATE) It has been pointed out to me that the FCC might not cover this because CSPAN is a cable channel. So be sure and include in your complaints that the FCC should expand its mandate to cover these types of outrages whether they are on broadcast OR cable TV. (END OF UPDATE).
Here is where to find out information about how to make a complaint http://www.fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/obscene.html
Maybe we should be alerting the American Family Association (AFA) for their aid in fighting this case of broadcast obscenity? http://www.afa.net/entertainment/
In fact, following the AFA’s lead, perhaps we can adapt the form letter they suggested for the Janet Jackson incident? Feel free to use this language to write an FCC complaint protesting the evil Republican filth machine that IS Laura Bush:
Federal Communications Commission
Investigation and Hearings Division
445 12th Street, S.W. Rm. 3B443
Washington, DC 20554
Dear Sir or Madam:
The Communications Act states, Whoever utters any obscene, indecent, or profane language by means of radio communication shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
In addition, the FCC has defined broadcast indecency as language or material that, in context, depicts or describes, in terms patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium, sexual or excretory organs or activities.
On the evening of April 30, 2004, CSPAN broadcast the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner Saturday night. This broadcast featured a perfectly obvious reference by the First Lady, Laura Bush, to man on animal sex, specifically a human manually manipulating a horse’s penis. This broadcast was patently offensive and violated contemporary community broadcast standards. I demand that CSPAN be fined the maximum amount for each indecency violation.
I hereby request the Federal Communications Commission conduct an official investigation of CSPAN for broadcast indecency.
Please notify me of the action taken regarding this complaint.
