Copps: ‘Is There a Bottom?’

Copps: 'Is There a Bottom?'

The FCC’s Enforcement Bureau dismissed several indecency complaints about the TV show “Philly” about a character in the show who used the word “dick”.
Commissioner Michael Copps isn’t happy about the dismissal, saying “The Bureau seems to argue that almost any word is permissible as long as it is not used in a very specific or particular context. I disagree – some terms are in themselves indecent.”
“I have said before that we seem to be in a broadcast and cable race to the bottom. I am beginning to wonder if there even is a bottom.”
