FCC Denies 36 TV Indecency Complaints
The FCC denied 36 complaints from the Parents Television Council alleging that various television station licensees had aired indecent material during several programs. PTC alleged that various programs that aired from 2001 to 2004 contained sexually explicit segments or used indecent or profane language.

The commission said none of the segments were patently offensive under contemporary community standards broadcasting. The agency also said the material was not profane.
For example, in one scene of one show, a character's breast is exposed, but not a nipple. One complaint involved the use of the term "dolphin sex."

In its decision, the commission said fleeting use of the words "penis," "vaginal" and "ass," for example, "do not render the material patently offensive under contemporary community standards."
