Don't let this happen.

TV has been getting more inappropriate by the minute. Still, I was NOT expecting to hear that they are considering changing some of the current bans.

"Specifically, if enacted, the new FCC policy would allow network television and local radio stations to air the f-word, the s-word and to allow programs to show frontal female nudity, even during hours when they know children will be watching and listening."

Please do something. The thought of my son being exposed to nudity and expletives on daytime television makes me sick. If this goes through my family is saying sayonara to TV... which maybe isn't a bad thing? But I digress. We have through April to stand up and voice our disgust.

Submit your comments to the FCC, urging it to reject any changes to the current policy. 
The FCC will not accept general email comments. To be valid, you are required to file a formal comment via the FCC's website.
Please follow these instruction carefully, to insure your comment is accepted by the FCC: 
1. Go to http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/upload/begin?procName=&filedFrom=X.
2. Enter the code "13-86" in the "Proceeding Number" box and fill out the few remaining required fields.
3. Enter your comment in the text box provided and click "Continue."
4. From there, review your comment and click "Confirm."
Here is a sample comment you may submit: 
I oppose any changes to the current FCC indecency standards that would allow television and radio stations to broadcast expletives and nudity on the public airwaves, even if brief or "fleeting."
The Supreme Court has confirmed the FCC's authority to enforce policies regarding expletives and nudity, especially during times when children are likely to be watching or listening.
Relaxing the current policy would not serve the public interest and I urge the FCC to reject all proposals that would allow for the broadcast of expletives and nudity on FCC-licensed stations.
This will take you all of two minutes. Please prevent this from happening.
