An Analysis of the Government Regulation of Radio in the United States

This analytical essay explores government regulation of the radio in the United States and whether the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) should regulate what content broadcasters put on the airways. The student examines regulation through the lens of it being a First Amendment issue and draws on two controversial case studies (George Carlin and Howard Stern) and relevant lawsuits, ultimately arguing that the FCC should further regulate the airing of indecent and obscene content.
