WASHINGTON, DC In a 2-1 ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit in New York today issued a ruling, which vacates and remands a 2006 FCC indecency decision against Fox Broadcasting.
The following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President Dennis Wharton:
"This is a timely opinion as public policymakers weigh the merits of further program content restrictions. NAB has long believed that responsible industry self-regulation is preferable to government regulation in areas of programming content."
The National Association of Broadcasters is a trade association that advocates on behalf of more than 8,300 free, local radio and television stations and also broadcast networks before Congress, the Federal Communications Commission and the Courts. Information about NAB can be found at www.nab.org.
