Carl’s statement But we do have the choice of whether to allow speech based on our own judgement of whether it deserves a platform. nicely expresses my take on this. It is up to each of us to decide what to air. The potential problem comes from how it is perceived by the “public”. Some won’t care about the content and if offended will move on but some will push back against it. This push back can be harmful to promoting the general case for allowing Part 15 broadcasting.
Factual or not, there are those who say if you keep your broadcast “clean” you won’t have a problem and others who say that a station was cited because it attracted attention by its “inappropriate” program content. The truth in such statements remains to be proven but often perception is reality for many.
