Network television is defending an f-word--and it's not family! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you thought TV was pushing the envelope now, hang on to your remotes. The FCC is debating whether to give the green light to R-rated language and nudity--even when kids would be watching. The FCC says it can't keep up with viewer complaints--so their solution is doing away with the rules altogether! They're arguing that it'd be easier to stay on top of things if they relaxed their standards and only had to follow up on the worst offenses. I think most parents would agree that it's tough to protect kids with the current regulations in place. Imagine how impossible it'd be in a sleazy network free-for-all! We're already fighting for their innocence in schools, checkout lines, and the web. Do we have to fight the government too? Log on to OneMillionMoms.com and file your comment with the FCC--before they swear off families altogether!
