Reader Poll: If the U.S. Supreme Court rules that the FCC cannot police the airways for indecency, are you prepared to completely prohibit TV viewing in your home?

Here’s the question we asked UFI readers:

“If the U.S. Supreme Court rules that the FCC cannot police the airways for indecency, are you prepared to completely prohibit TV viewing in your home?”

Here’s how the readers responded:

45 Percent                   Already do prohibit TV viewing

30 Percent                   Will start prohibiting TV viewing

23 Percent                   I think I can monitor it without the FCC

0 Percent                     Doesn’t concern me

2 percent                     Don’t know what I’d do

In recent weeks the U.S. Supreme Court has heard arguments in the case FCC v. Fox.  This case addresses whether or not the FCC has the right to censor the airways for broadcasting indecency.  There are some interesting arguments on both sides.

Gary Boyd, a UFI blogger, had an interesting take on the situation.  That’s what prompted us to ask the above question.  You can read his views here.
