FOX Show Our Little Genius Being Investigated By FCC

Posted Feb 22, 2010

The F.C.C. is investigating the FOX game show “Our Little Genius” to find out if they gave potential contestants the answers to the questions. Wow, sounds like a Slumdog Millionaire moment. The parents of one of the children sent a letter to the F.C.C. alleging that a production staff member provided specific answers to about four of the questions. According to Section 508 of the Communications Act of 1934, it is illegal for anyone to give with intent to deceive the viewing or listening public, assistance that will affect the outcome. [NYT]
