Fox President Laments “Indecency” Confusion, Self-Censorship

Filed under  by Amanda Toering — 03/29/2005 @ 4:51 pm

Speaking to an Arkansas Rotary Club, Fox TV President Ed Wilson expressed concern about the FCC crackdown on so-called indecency.

Wilson said he is personally more conservative with what he would like to show on television, [ while] others at the network like to push the envelope. In the end, he said he believes networks must give viewers information about how they can decide for themselves what’s suitable for themselves and their families to watch.

“They put on ‘off’ button on televisions for a reason,” Wilson said, adding that parents must be the first line of defense in guarding against indecency. He said devices such as the V-chip, which are included in modern televisions and can be programmed to filter certain content, are tools parents should use.

  1. What are the broadcasters supposed to do? I don’t watch much Fox. But are they supposed to censor themselves?
