CCV & Howard Stern See Eye To Eye?!

Sharonville-based Citizens For Community Values is happy that FCC Chairman Michael Powell is leaving his post. Phil Burress tells FOX 19 when he met with Powell he always had the feeling the chairman didn't care about what was being said about indecency on TV and radio. Powell announced Friday that he'd be leaving his job in March. Shock jock Howard Stern says he's happy to see Powell go too. However, unlike Burress, he's not looking forward to his replacement. Stern suspects the new FCC chairman will be even more strict on enforcement of indecency laws. In 2004 the FCC handed down a record high $7.7 million in fines to broadcasters. That includes the more than $500,000 paid by CBS for Janet Jackson's Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction.
