Blurry lines defined the Liberman/FCC indecency action


LBI / Liberman Broadcasting, Inc.There is no doubt Liberman Broadcasting’s “José Luis Sin Censura” program drew complaints, but was it indecent? The FCC said yes, Liberman no, and in the end, they agreed to disagree. The agreement was pricy for Liberman, but it emerged from the proceeding without penalty.

The FCC noted that Liberman readily admits to airing the material in question. It maintained all along that it was not indecent. The FCC professed to disagree. The show has since been discontinued.
