FCC spokeswoman Tamara Lipper said the commission doesn’t “police the airwaves. We respond to viewer complaints. … It’s up to individual stations to decide what they should air or not air.” – Associated Press Broadcasters say the hesitancy of some CBS affiliates to air a powerful Sept. 11 documentary next week proves there’s been a chilling effect on the First Amendment since federal regulators boosted penalties for television obscenities after Janet Jackson’s breast was exposed at a Super Bowl halftime show. “This is example No. 1,” said Martin Franks, executive vice president of CBS Corp., of the decision by two dozen CBS affiliates to replace or delay “9/11” – which has already aired twice without controversy – over concerns about some of the language used by the firefighters in it. “We don’t think it’s appropriate to sanitize the reality of the hell of Sept. 11th,” Franks said. CBS will show it 8-10 p.m. on Sept. 10, profanity intact. So far, about a dozen CBS affiliates have indicated they won’t show the documentary, another dozen say they will delay it until later at night and two dozen others are considering what to do. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
