  • Eminem's real Slim Shady [clean version] not clean enough for FCC....

    A Colorado radio station found out the hard way that broadcasting an edited version of a song doesn't guarantee you're in compliance with FCC decency regulations.

    Following up on a listener complaint, the government agency has fined KKMG-FM $7,000 for airing the radio edit of Eminem's "The Real Slim Shady."

    Because the Colorado Springs station broadcast an edited version of the song, KKMG parent company Citadel Communications claimed that it wasn't violating FCC rules, according to a notice issued by the agency. In addition to the changes made to the song by Eminem's label, Interscope, Citadel made further edits "in an attempt to render the song suitable for broadcast," the notice said.

    In its ruling, though, the FCC said the edited version "contains unmistakable offensive sexual references ... that appear intended to pander and shock." Earlier this year, the FCC issued new guidelines indicating that innuendo and context are factors in determining whether a record violates its decency standards, regardless of the specific words.

    "There is nothing about the context of 'The Real Slim Shady' which removes the material from the realm of indecency," the agency said.

    An unidentified KKMG listener filed a complaint about the airing of the song in July 2000. Citadel, which said KKMG broadcast the song about 418 times in May, June and July 2000, claimed the listener submitted lyrics from an Internet site, not transcribed from the actual broadcast, according to the FCC notice.

    The FCC cited the lines "walkin' around, grabbin' his you know what" and "but it's cool for Tom Green to hump a dead moose" as objectionable, as well as lines about masturbation and a "bleeped" reference to a female body part.

    The FCC defines indecent material as that which "depicts or describes sexual or excretory organs or activities" in a manner that is "patently offensive as measured by contemporary community standards," according to the agency's Web site. The FCC responds to consumer complaints about radio and television, but does not actively monitor broadcasts.
