Oregon Broadcaster Fined for Kids TV Reporting Error
FCC says human error, corrective actions don't make up for omission

The FCC's Media Bureau, which released the notice of liability Friday, said that even though the station said it had inadvertently failed to file the reports, human error was not an excuse for violating its rules. The station had pointed out that it has since filed all the requisite reports -- as of April 2011 -- but the FCC said corrective action does not relieve a licensee of liability for past violations.
The FCC concluded the four-year lapse was the kind of "repeated and willful" violation that draws fines.
The station has 30 days to either pay or appeal the fine.
