FCC Defends its ‘Vulgar Expletives’ Finding in Court Filing

Oct 29, 2009  •  Post A Comment

In a court filing Wednesday, the FCC defended its conclusion that the "vulgar expletives" from Cher and Nicole Richie during a Fox broadcast in 2002 violated community broadcasting standards, B&C reports.

The Supreme Court recently upheld the FCC’s decision to "expand broadcast indecency enforcement to fleeting expletives," and therefore, the commission said in a filing, Fox has “no basis” for challenging the FCC’s finding regarding the broadcasts.

  1. It’s about time somebodt stood up to those radicals who think it is all right to talk dirty to the TV watching public.
    Even the foulest comedians can somehow clean up their act for the family audience, and those who can’t should pay the price.
