Senators seek probe of TV vulgarity

Published on .

Four senators are urging the Federal Communications Commission to examine the rise in vulgar dialogue and graphic sexual depictions on TV. Sens. John McCain (R., Ariz.), Joe Lieberman (D., Conn.), Robert Byrd (D., W.Va.) and Sam Brownback (R., Kan.) said in a letter to the FCC that evidence shows "that many licensees, along with their network parents, are breaching this public trust and harming rather than serving the public interest."
