FCC contemplates relaxing indecency rules

WASHINGTON D.C.-- Congress and the FCC have come under fire in recent days after saying they are considering loosening the standards of profanity and nudity on network television. 

In a posting on their website last month the FCC acknowledged that they had been in talks with congress that would allow for network television content to be brought more in line with cable television programming. 

The agency did not specify exactly how they would deem what is appropriate and what is not. 

Due to public outcry and over 95,000 responses on their website, they agreed to push the deadline back from May 20th to June 19th.
