I am a new user so unable to edit it myself, but hopefully someone else can. I started the split. If it turns into a major thing with Stern issuing a press conf.
Although the changes have gone unnoticed by most Americans, In the radio business they are felt day in and day out. You see the rule seems to change depending on who you are.
If you are tagged by the FCC anything the broadcaster does or says is monitored and picked over and fined. King Of All Media. But according to Stern other programs are saying or doing the same if not worse things than he is. Stern tells of when Geraldo said Stern Miss America. That seems a bit more tame to me but since Stern is tagged he gets fined.
The First Amendment states. The FCC is the god of the broadcasting industry, they do not have to answer to anybody they have all the power to do whatever they want.
The rules are not documented. Martin Espada is a person who got pulled from the air and his poem censored.
And with the heat the poem would have generated the program with some forceful help from the FCC type group called National Public Radio the poem was pulled and Espada was no longer allowed to read his poetry on the air. Now Espada was never fined from the FCC because his poem never made the air waves, but the real question is, If it had, would Espada been fined?
This shows the hypocrisy of the FCC. And a show like the Howard Stern Show. This is so true what the FCC, N.
Howard and other deejays say what is on most of are minds anyway, most people are just to afraid too say what is on their mind. One other case is the case that disappeared. The problem was this, Neil is an open homosexual, and he was talking about himself.
The case was thrown out of court and now Neil says he is pretty much left alone. But the FCC has lost the paper work and deny ever giving him a fine.
There are ways to stop all the censorship in radio but it most likely wont ever be stopped completely. There are groups and political parties there to help the cause such as the Libertarian party Libertarian Party, and Freedom For Speech.
But neither is very powerful so I propose some easy solutions. The Supreme Court must look over the First amendment remember what it stands for and limit the power of the FCC this organization has way too much power. There is checks and balance in all other government except for the FCC the Supreme Court should set up another origination to balance the power, like congress they would have to vote majority rules on every censorship issue and all other regulations that are set and regulations to be set.Howard Stern and the Future of Media Censorship by Adam Thierer on October 11, I released a short essay today regarding the impact of Howard Stern’s move to satellite radio ont he future of media regulation and First Amendment jurisprudence.
The religious groups to which Butterworth refers have remained uncommonly silent on the issue of morning radio shows. So have media watchdog groups. The freedom on morning radio shows is a stark contrast to what some consider an atmosphere of artistic censorship prevailing in .
With characteristic bravado, last week Howard Stern bid farewell to his "terrestrial radio" audience. Henceforth, Stern fans will only be able to hear his unique brand of narcissistic pre-adolescent scatology and prurience by paying for a subscription to Sirius satellite radio.
Howard then read a story from today’s The New York Post that Artie acknowledged yesterday that he attended a corporate meeting about censorship, even though Howard had insisted no such restrictions were in place.
Censorship! I’ve been a Howard Stern fan for years. During my last semester in college, when Howard was still at K-Rock, I was offered an internship at the show on which, unfortunately, I had to pass due to workload and scheduling. The Howard Stern Show aired for the last time on AM and FM airwaves on December 16, Background.
FCC fines since the FCC believed there may have been some uncertainty as to the reach of the Carlin case, the FCC acted on December 18 to issue a combined $, NAL, rather than revoke its broadcasting licenses.
