In 1973 (Miller V. California) the United States Supreme Court developed a three-part test to define obscenity, which is not protected by the First Amendment. Under this test a community media station could prohibit programming considered obscene, but the Supreme Court’s definition is extremely broad and community media stations have generally had difficulty applying the three-part test. In turn, many community media stations do not attempt to censor obscene programming. Also, in 1993, the United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit found that the judicial system must be used to deal with obscenity.
