The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been bombarded with hundreds of thousands of complaints concerning the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show. Although the focal point of the complaints has been a public breast exposure, the complaints perhaps reflect the general outrage at a halftime show which has been described as a raunchy and disgraceful public display of indecency. The National Football League took a huge risk with its franchise presentation which has already reached over 100 million viewers. The FCC, however, is supposed to function as the guardian of what passes for a certain level of public decency and cultural acceptability. But has it been doing that or has it deteriorated to a little more than a back-water refuge for nepotism and industry fawning? This book presents media analyses of what the FCC is supposed to do – not what it does based on results.
