The "politics" of broadcast regulation -namely, the influence of various political players -can be clearly seen in the case of broadcast indecency policy. While the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or the Commission), Congress, the White House, the United States Supreme Court, citizens groups and industry lobbyists have played a part in the unfolding drama, this article asserts that the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit (D.C. Circuit) has played the most important role in the evolution of broadcast indecency policy. The purpose of this article, then, is to explore the rulings of the D.C. Circuit during the past decade.
