Washington, D.C. – According to Broadcasting and Cable, the Justice Department is dragging its feet on appealing a Second Circuit court decision that allows broadcasters to air profanity at any time during the day. Concerned Women for America’s CEO Penny Nance issued the following statement:
“The Justice Department must appeal this case unless President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are fine with throwing all standards of decency and all protection of children out the window when it comes to the television airwaves.
“Those airwaves belong to the public and no one supports dropping f-bombs on Good Morning America in the morning, or Dr. Phil in the afternoon, or American Idol in the evening. These activist judges have thumbed their noses at Congress, the FCC, and American families.
“Broadcasters filed this case in New York because they knew this was a liberal activist court unlikely to uphold the decency standards. So the ball is in Obama’s and Holder’s court. Will they defend American families and children or not?”
