Morality in the Media Asks a Question

Filed under  by Amanda Toering — 04/25/2005 @ 7:39 am

The right-wing group Morality in Media has conducted a one-question poll regarding television and its adherence to community standards.

The question: “In your opinion, is the FCC doing a good job or a poor job of maintaining community standards of decency on broadcast TV, particularly during the evening hours from 8 PM to 10 PM?” Fifty-three percent of the 1,000 respondents said that the FCC is doing a poor job. Forth-one percent said the FCC was doing a good job.

MIM apparently neglected to inform the pollees that the FCC is not responsible for “maintaing community standards of decency on broadcast TV,” since the FCC does not monitor broadcast television, but only reacts to the complaints of those who do.

In other MIM news, a representative of the group somehow found time to contribute to a protest at a Buffalo, NY, church on Sunday. At issue was the performance of a gay men’s chorus. Said one protestor, “there should never be conversation, laughing or applause” inside a church.
