NAB Statement on Supreme Court Agreeing to Review FCC's "Indecency" Enforcement

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the decision by the Supreme Court to review the FCC’s enforcement of program content regulations on broadcast TV, NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton issued the following statement:

"NAB supports a constitutional review of the FCC's enforcement of program content rules. As broadcasters, we will continue to offer programming that is reflective of the diverse communities we serve. Responsible programming decisions by network and local station executives, coupled with program blocking technologies like the V-chip and proper guidance of children by parents and caregivers, are far preferable to government regulation of program content."
