Re: I don't feel like posting in my journal.

4) Basically, congress just approved legislation saying that the FCC could raise their fines tenfold. (from $35K to $350K per infraction). Since FCC fines are at their discretion and without an appeals process, this effectively, this means that any non-major local station (radio or tv) can be put out of business by the FCC simply deciding that they don't like them. The FCC has basically decided that they don't like anything blatantly sexual and have pressed harsh fines because of it. Key in point, the Janet Jackson incident, Howard Stern. On the other hand, people that they do like have been essentially given free passes without incident. Key in point, Oprah Winfrey happened to have a show where she was talking about "deviant sex" the same morning that Howard Stern talked to the guy in the the Paris Hilton sex tape. Howard was essentially fined off the air in several markets for saying "did she ever put her tongue in the area of your rear end that is generally considered an exit." Oprah on the other hand talked about group sex, described various types of oral sex in detail and talked about "tossing salads" in much more detail than Howard did.

The FCC officially responded that they were fining Howard and not Oprah as Oprah deserves more leway since she is "beloved."

5) Good answering of the Pivot questionairre. I am impressed.
