No S_ _ _! Appeals Court Doesn’t Appear to Buy FCC’s Indecency Ruling

Jan 14, 2010  •  Post A Comment

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City heard arguments between the FCC and Fox Wednesday, Jan 13th, over swearing on live TV and the consensus among observers was that the judges weren’t buying the FCC’s argument, B&C reports.

According to the article, " "To say that the justices were extremely skeptical of the FCC’s application of the indecency law from a constitutional perspective in this case is an understatement,’ said one observer sympathetic to the broadcaster arguments and who asked not to be identified. The FCC said no one was available to comment on their side of the argument."
