People understand that certain TV stations are not appropriate for certain ages, so why should the radio have different rules? Swearing and foul language in general is really not the end of the world; kids know the words anyway, and its up to the parents to teach their children to use proper language.
Disc Jockeys should not be allowed to swear on public television regardless of the importance or popularity in society's eyes. Every disc jockey that swears should not be allowed to have air time. They are a bad role model for our kids and society and we need people who can live up to good standards that others can follow.
I personally think that disc jockeys should not be allowed to swear on live radio the reason being is because we all have different beliefs as well as it would make that individual be known for having a bad impression. I personally think that disc jockeys should not be allowed to swear on live radio because some people look up to certain people and may put a bad taste in their mouths.
If a parent is turning the station randomly and they have their child in the car they do not need to subject them to profanity if they are not at a stage with their child to discuss those things. I do understand that on some satellite radio stations they do have profanity, and that is different. It is not on every channel and depending on what you are listening to, you expect it. But on the regular run of the mill radio station it should not be allowed.
No, disc jockeys should not be allowed to swear on live radio, because there are children listening. Disc jockeys can choose other ways to get their point across. There is no need to use certain words that children might be able to pick up on. Disc jockeys can play the radio without it.
