ABSTRACT
The article reports that the WISH-TV Channel 8 could be among five CBS network affiliates in Indiana that would have been fined by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for indecent programming. The fine was proposed for alleged violations of FCC decency standards such as the airing of a program depicting teenagers in a sexual orgy. The fines were rescinded by the FCC after realizing that the programs of indecent content were aired past the so-called safe harbor period.
