FOLLOWING OUR MOST RECENT SUPREME COURT VICTORY AND BRIEF, OUR FUNDS ARE DEPLETED! PLEASE HELP US PREPARE FOR FUTURE LEGAL CHALLENGES BY TV NETWORKS AND TO KEEP PRESSURE ON THE FCC!
OUR WORK IS ENTIRELY ON A VOLUNTEER BASIS - NO ONE AT DECENT TV DRAWS A SALARY, WAGE, OR CONTRACT PAYMENT OF ANY KIND FOR OUR WORK. BUT THERE ARE EXPENSES REQUIRED TO BE PAID TO OTHERS FOR NECESSARY SERVICES, AND WE GET A LOT OF IMPACT ON A SMALL BUDGET. EVEN SMALL DONATIONS HELP! (EASY TO USE PAY PAL BUTTON AT PAGE BOTTOM FOR CREDIT CARD!)
Please remember that we are the only organzation in the U.S. whose exclusive purpose is to advocate in the courts and FCC for some level of continued broadcast decency on television and radio. We operate on a small efficient budget, and are up against the entire television broadcasting network industry with their multi-million dollar budgets to accomplish their agenda with high priced law firms. Our work does require thousands of dollars of expenses, and hundreds of hours of legal work. We operate on a no-debt basis, and with no grant monies, so must rely on individual contributions to continue this battle. Donations are a matter of individual choice. We only ask that those considering a donation keep in mind that the results of the current court cases will likely be irreversible in their effect on what may or may not be broadcast into homes and public places permanently. Unfortunately, the FCC cannot and does not do all that is necessary to enforce the broadcast decency laws enacted by the nation's citizens through Congress. If the networks succeed, there will probably never again be any limitation on broadcast content, whatsoever, at any time of day. Our Congress would lose all power to regulate our public broadcast airwaves for content.
The Courts may even go so far as to exceed their powers by finding that the laws and regulations that limit broadcast indecency are entirely unconstitutional, attempting to strike them down completely and permanently, so that there would be no limit on what could be said or shown on TV or radio at any time in the future. Be assured that if we receive the necessary donations to do so, we will continue to advocate for decency and the rule of law in these cases!
