The FCC says the number of radio and television broadcasting complaints significantly increased, from 44,287 in the fourth quarter of 2005 to 141,994 in the first quarter of 2006. Complaints in the obscenity/indecency/profanity category made the largest jump, from 44,109 to 141,868.
Overall, the amount of radio and television broadcasting inquiries decreased from 4,514 in Q4 of last year to 4,238 in Q1 of this year.
The figures are contained in the FCC's quarterly report on inquiries and complaints processed by the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau during the first quarter of calendar year 2006.
The agency says it receives many inquiries and complaints that do not involve violations of the Communications Act or an FCC rule.
"The existence of a complaint does not necessarily indicate wrongdoing by the company at issue," stated the agency.
