The media is at the center of life, but what does religion and politics do on the outside to the media. This relationship of the FCC and religious watchdog groups try to control the media from the outside. The watchdogs use the FCC to filter out what they consider obscene and the FCC administers fines to the media outlets who violate their rules. I believe that religion should not play a role in government, but for the case of the watchdogs I support what they do. The FCC alone can not keep the airwaves under control completely by themselves, for this reason alone, any group, religious or not, should be aloud to bring some decency to the airwaves. If that means that the media must lose some of its freedom of speech rights so be it. Somethings are just not meant to be said.
