Music censorship did not just begin in the past 20 ..
FCC regulations addressed questions of obscenity and to some extent, political balance, but they paid little attention to other aspects of television content. How should the FCC approach depictions of violence, criminality, drug and alcohol use, and other forms of immorality? Congress held its first hearing on the subject in 1952, they chose not to take any action to interfere with the industry, in part because that year the National Association of Radio and Television Broadcasters adopted their own code to regulate broadcast content. The NARTB followed the model of Hollywood, which had always, when presented with calls for censorship, acted to censor itself with production codes and decency standards. No specific law said that married couples could not share a bed on TV: rather, the television industry voluntarily imposed that limit on itself.
At Project Censored, we examine the coverage of news and information important to the maintenance of a healthy and functioning democracy. We define Modern Censorship as the subtle yet constant and sophisticated manipulation of reality in our mass media outlets. On a daily basis, censorship refers to the intentional non-inclusion of a news story – or piece of a news story – based on anything other than a desire to tell the truth. Such manipulation can take the form of political pressure (from government officials and powerful individuals), economic pressure (from advertisers and funders), and legal pressure (the threat of lawsuits from deep-pocket individuals, corporations, and institutions).
Public Support for Media Censorship Across the Americas
Television was invented in the late 1920s, but didn't become popular until the 1950s. In 1949, about one million sets were in use: by the end of the 1950s, Americans owned more than 50 million TVs. As television began reaching into nearly very living room in America, it brought questions about its content -- should it be regulated, and how?

Whereas censorship in the 1950s and 1960s was based on the presumed standards and tastes of the white middle-class nuclear family, censorship in the 1970s became a process of balancing the often conflicting values of marginal social groups.
