Did You Know - Follow-up to FCC Ruling

This is really beautiful. The FCC wants the news censored. They even want what their own agency chief says to have to be censored. I love it - these pious morons don't find the world to be exactly as they want it to be - so they try to change everything and everyone in it.

God Bless America!

Saying he finds it "hard to believe that the New York court would tell American families that 'shit' and 'f---' are fine to say on broadcast TV during the hours when children and families are most likely to be in the audience," Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin J. Martin today blasted an appellate court decision that overturned the FCC's attempt to impose new limits on "fleeting expletives" on broadcast TV.

'I completely disagree with the court's ruling and am disappointed for American families,' FCC Chairman Kevin Martin said of the appellate court's ruling.

In a 2-to-1 vote, a panel of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York rejected the FCC's ruling that Fox Television Networks' airing of profanities by Nicole Richie and Cher during the 2002 and 2003 Billboard Music Awards amounted to indecency. The court majority also questioned whether the policy on expletives issued in reaction to Bono's referring to an award as "f---ing brilliant" during NBC's telecast of the 2002 Golden Globe Awards was legally sustainable.
