On MSNBC’s Monday airing of “The ED Show,” host Ed Schultz asked his guest, National Action
Network President Al Sharpton, if there should be ways that the Federal Communications Commission could intervene in the wake of the alleged hostile reaction to a California state senator’s proposed boycott of Rush Limbaugh.
“How would you anticipate the FCC governing what talkers might say on the air in situations like this?” Schultz said. “Would there be a review board? Would it go — because obviously once the license is given out, they still put talkers on the air. What if they continue to act like that and who would be the judge on what’s over the line?”
Sharpton said Schultz’s suggestions could work and would be appropriate just as profanity is regulated on the airwaves.
