Lovers of the truly bizarre process by which the Federal Communications Commission receives indecency complaints from the public will enjoy our comprehensive table of all indecency, obscenity, and profanity complaints logged by the agency since 2002.
Here’s a sample of the last line of the chart:
|“Other programming issues”||510||248||676|
Notice that huge jump in indecency / obscenity numbers in March from 505 to 179,997 (while the other categories remained stable)? That’s typical of the roller coaster pattern that is the monthly fluctuation of government indecency complaints. Chances are good that most of these gripes are generated by decency group auto-forms. Anyway, enjoy!
