           NOTICE OF APPARENT LIABILITY FOR FORFEITURE

Adopted:  October 5, 2004             Released:  October 12, 2004

By the Commission: Commissioner Martin issuing a statement.


I.     INTRODUCTION

     1. In this Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture 
(?NAL?), issued pursuant to section 503(b) of the Communications 
Act of 1934, as amended (the ?Act?), and section 1.80 of the 
Commission's rules,2 we find that the licensees of 169 Fox 
Television Network stations (?Fox Network Stations?)3 apparently 
broadcast indecent material during an episode of the Fox program 
?Married By America? on April 7, 2003, in apparent willful 
violation of the federal restrictions regarding the broadcast of 
indecent material.  Based on our review of the facts and 
circumstances in this case, we conclude that the licensees are 
apparently liable for monetary forfeitures in the amount of 
$7,000 for each of their respective stations that broadcast the 
material at issue, for a total proposed forfeiture of $1,183,000.

II.     BACKGROUND

     2. ?Married By America? was a ?reality-based? television 
program in which several single adults agreed to be engaged to 
and potentially marry each other, even though they had never 
previously met.  The April 7, 2003 episode of the program focused 
on the Las Vegas bachelor and bachelorette parties for the 
remaining two couples.  These parties featured strippers and 
various sexual situations.  Following that broadcast, the 
Commission received 159 complaints alleging that the ?Married By 
America? episode contained indecent material.4  After reviewing 
the complaints and a videotape of the subject episode, the 
Enforcement Bureau directed a letter of inquiry (?LOI?) to TVT 
License, Inc., licensee of Station WTVT(TV), Tampa, Florida, 
seeking further information about the episode.5  By letters dated 
August 11 and September 9, 2003, Fox responded to the LOI.6    

     3. In its responses, Fox states that all of the Fox 
Stations identified in the Attachment hereto broadcast ?Married By 
America? prior to 10:00 p.m. on the date in question.  Fox also 
states that none of the Fox Affiliates identified in the 
Attachment notified Fox that it declined to air the program.7  
Fox maintains that the ?Married By America? episode in question did 
not contain descriptions or depictions of sexual or excretory 
organs or activities and, even if it did, the material was not 
patently offensive.8  

III.     DISCUSSION

     4. The Federal Communications Commission is authorized to 
license radio and television broadcast stations and is 
responsible for enforcing the Commission's rules and applicable 
statutory provisions concerning the operation of those stations.  
The Commission's role in overseeing program content is very 
limited.  The First Amendment to the United States Constitution 
and section 326 of the Act prohibit the Commission from censoring 
program material and from interfering with broadcasters' freedom 
of expression.9  The Commission does, however, have the authority 
to enforce statutory and regulatory provisions restricting 
indecency and obscenity.  Specifically, it is a violation of 
federal law to broadcast obscene or indecent programming.  Title 
18 of the United States Code, section 1464, prohibits the 
utterance of ?any obscene, indecent or profane language by means 
of radio communication.?10  In addition, consistent with a 
subsequent statute and court case,11 section 73.3999 of the 
Commission's rules provides that radio and television stations 
shall not broadcast indecent material during the period 6 a.m. 
through 10 p.m.12

     5. As an initial matter, we find that the episode of 
?Married By America? that is the subject of this NAL was indeed 
broadcast on April 7, 2003, over each of the Fox Stations and Fox 
Affiliates identified in the Attachment.13  We further conclude 
that the stations listed in the Attachment apparently broadcast 
the program prior to 10 p.m., local time.  

     A.     Indecency Analysis

     6.   Any consideration of government action against 
allegedly indecent programming must take into account the fact 
that such speech is protected under the First Amendment.14  The 
federal courts consistently have upheld Congress's authority to 
regulate the broadcast of indecent material, as well the 
Commission's interpretation and implementation of the governing 
statute.15  Nevertheless, the First Amendment is a critical 
constitutional limitation that demands that, in indecency 
determinations, we proceed cautiously and with appropriate 
restraint.16  

     7.   The Commission defines indecent speech as language 
that, in context, depicts or describes sexual or excretory 
activities or organs in terms patently offensive as measured by 
contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium.17  
Indecency findings involve at least two fundamental 
determinations.  First, the material alleged to be indecent must 
fall within the subject matter scope of our indecency definition 
-- that is, the material must describe or depict sexual or 
excretory organs or activities.  Second, the broadcast must be 
patently offensive as measured by contemporary community 
standards for the broadcast medium.18

     8.   Turning to the instant case, we begin our analysis with 
an examination of whether the material at issue depicts or 
describes sexual or excretory organs or activities.  As noted 
above, the April 7, 2003, episode of ?Married By America? focuses 
on bachelor and bachelorette parties in a Las Vegas hotel.  Fox 
contends that these scenes do not depict or describe sexual or 
excretory organs or activity, arguing that its editing of the 
broadcast avoided any such depictions.19  We reject Fox's claim.  
Even with Fox's editing, the episode includes scenes in which 
party-goers lick whipped cream from strippers' bodies in a 
sexually suggestive manner.  Another scene features a man on all 
fours in his underwear as two female strippers playfully spank 
him.  Although the episode electronically obscures any nudity, 
the sexual nature of the scenes is inescapable, as the strippers 
attempt to lure party-goers into sexually compromising 
situations.  Accordingly, we conclude that the broadcast 
satisfies the first prong of our indecency analysis and warrants 
further scrutiny to determine whether it was patently offensive 
as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast 
medium.20

     9.   In our assessment of whether broadcast material is 
patently offensive, ?the full context in which the material 
appeared is critically important.?21  Three principal factors are 
significant to this contextual analysis: (1) the explicitness or 
graphic nature of the description; (2) whether the material 
dwells on or repeats at length descriptions of sexual or 
excretory organs or activities; and (3) whether the material 
appears to pander or is used to titillate or shock.22  In 
examining these three factors, we must weigh and balance them to 
determine whether the broadcast material is patently offensive 
because ?[e]ach indecency case presents its own particular mix of 
these, and possibly, other factors.?23  In particular cases, the 
weight of one or two of the factors may outweigh the others, 
either rendering the broadcast material patently offensive and 
consequently indecent,24 or, alternatively, removing the 
broadcast material from the realm of indecency.25  

     10.  We find that the material described above is 
sufficiently graphic and explicit to be indecent, particularly in 
light of our analysis of the last two factors.  Contrary to Fox's 
assertion,26 merely obscuring (or ?pixilating?) sexual organs does 
not necessarily remove a broadcast from our indecency analysis.  
As noted above, we must assess each broadcast on its ?full 
context.?  In this case, Fox obscures the depiction of sexual 
organs in the episode, but the pixilation does little to obscure 
the overtly sexual and gratuitous nature of the 
bachelor/bachelorette party scenes.  These scenes show, for 
example, partially clothed strippers, such as a topless woman 
with her breasts pixilated, straddling a man in a sexually 
suggestive manner; two partially clothed female strippers kissing 
each other above a male; two partially clothed strippers rubbing 
a man's stomach; a male stripper about to put a woman's hand down 
the front of his pants; and a man in his underwear on all fours 
being spanked by two topless strippers.  The scenes also show one 
of the bachelorettes straddling and touching a topless female 
stripper and then licking whipped cream off the stripper's 
stomach and bare chest while the stripper holds her own breasts. 
Although the nudity was pixilated, even a child would have known 
that the strippers were topless and that sexual activity was 
being shown.  See Pacifica, 438 U.S. at 749.  

     11.  We also reject Fox's claim that the sexual material is 
fleeting.27  Indeed, the opposite is true.  The entire segment, 
lasting about six minutes, focuses on the bachelor/bachelorette 
parties, and strippers are featured prominently throughout the 
accompanying scenes attempting to lure participants into sexual 
activities.  Under any reasonable interpretation, the material 
plainly dwells on matters of a sexual nature.  

     12.  Finally, we find that the material is intended to 
pander to and titillate the audience.  Fox contends that ?all of 
the scenes are an integral part of the storyline and the various 
participants' character development? and, and therefore, the 
episode did not pander, the material was not used to titillate, 
and the program was not presented for ?shock value.?28  We 
disagree.  The episode depicts the prolonged appearance of 
strippers attempting to sexually arouse the party-goers and 
certainly goes well beyond that necessary for the ?character 
development? of the various participants.  The material is 
gratuitous, vulgar, and clearly intended to pander to and 
titillate.

     13.  Considering all three factors in our contextual 
analysis, we find that the broadcast material in question is 
patently offensive as measured by contemporary community 
standards for the broadcast medium, and is therefore indecent.  
Because there was a reasonable risk that children may have been 
in the audience on April 7, 2003, when the material in the 
?Married By America? episode was broadcast, the broadcast is 
legally actionable.  By broadcasting this material over each of 
the stations identified in the Attachment, each of the Fox 
Network Stations apparently willfully violated the prohibitions 
in the Act and the Commission's rules against broadcast 
indecency.

     B.     Proposed Forfeiture

     14.  Section 503(b) of the Act, 47 U.S.C.  503(b), and 
section 1.80(a) of the Commission's rules, 47 C.F.R  1.80, both 
state that any person who willfully or repeatedly fails to comply 
with the provisions of the Act or the rules shall be liable for a 
forfeiture penalty.  For purposes of section 503(b) of the Act, 
the term ?willful? means that the violator knew it was taking the 
action in question, irrespective of any intent to violate the 
Commission's rules.29  Based on the material before us, it 
appears that the Fox Network Stations willfully violated 18 
U.S.C.  1464 and section 73.3999 of the Commission's rules, by 
airing indecent programming during the ?Married By America? program 
on April 7, 2003.  

     15.  The Commission's Forfeiture Policy Statement sets a 
base forfeiture amount of $7,000 for the transmission of indecent 
or obscene materials.30  The Forfeiture Policy Statement also 
specifies that the Commission shall adjust a forfeiture based 
upon consideration of the factors enumerated in Section 
503(b)(2)(D) of the Act, 47 U.S.C.  503(b)(2)(D), such as ?the 
nature, circumstances, extent and gravity of the violation, and, 
with respect to the violator, the degree of culpability, any 
history of prior offenses, ability to pay, and such other matters 
as justice may require.?31  

     16.  We propose a $7,000 forfeiture against each Fox Station 
and Fox Affiliate station.  With respect to the Fox Affiliates, 
we note that the situation differs from our recent Super Bowl 
NAL.32  In that case, we concluded that the affiliates ?could not 
have reasonably anticipated that the CBS Network production of a 
prestigious national event such as the Super Bowl would contain 
material that included the on-camera exposure of Ms. Jackson's 
breast.?33  This program, in contrast, was a taped episode in a 
taped series, and the affiliates could have preempted it, as at 
least one affiliate did.34

       SEPARATE STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER KEVIN J. MARTIN

Re:       Complaints Against  Various Licensees  Regarding  Their 
     Broadcast Of The Fox  Television Network Program ?Married  By 
     America? On April 7, 2003,  Notice of Apparent Liability  for 
     Forfeiture, October 5, 2004

     This Notice of Apparent Liability proposes to fine the FOX 
affiliates who aired the show in question because it was a taped 
show and ?the affiliates could have preempted it.? This decision 
highlights the need to clarify that affiliates have the right and 
responsibility to reject inappropriate programming.  As I have 
said on numerous occasions, this obligation is critical to local 
broadcasters' ability to keep coarser network programming off the 
air in their communities.37  The network affiliates asked us to 
clarify this right over three years ago.38  The Commission needs 
to respond.

for the licensees and stations involved in this proceeding.

3 For purposes of this NAL, the ?Fox Network Stations? include:  
(i) the television stations identified in the Attachment that 
are licensed to or ultimately controlled by Fox Entertainment 
Group, Inc. (?Fox Stations?); and (ii) the television stations 
identified in the Attachment that are Fox Television Network 
affiliates but not licensed to or ultimately controlled by Fox 
(?Fox Affiliates?).

13 See note 7, supra, and accompanying text.  As noted above, the 
Attachment hereto identifies the Fox Stations and Fox Affiliates 
that apparently broadcast the April 7, 2003 episode of  ?Married 
By America.?  We note that the list does not include all Fox 
affiliate stations; for example, the list omits Station WRAZ-TV, 
Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, which is owned and operated by 
Capitol Broadcasting Company (?Capitol?).  According to a Capitol 
press release, following the March 5, 2003 episode of ?Married By 
America,? Capitol ?decided that the program did not reflect 
prevailing standards of good taste and that the show was clearly 
demeaning to the institution of marriage.?  See Capitol 
Broadcasting Press Release, WRAZ-TV/FOX 50 To Preempt Future 
Broadcasts of Married by America (March 9, 2003), available at 
http://www.cbc-raleigh.com/inside_cbc/2003%20news/030903fx.htm.
