The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against the FCC's policy regulating curse words and nudity on broadcast television.The FCC can go fuck itself with a rusty plow. Indecency is in the eye of the beholder, and as such so vague that there is no possible excuse for not protecting what some call 'indecent' under the umbrella of the First Amendment.
In an 8-0 decision, the high court threw out fines and sanctions imposed by the Federal Communications Commission. The case involved some uncensored curse words and brief nudity on various networks, including Fox.
"Because the FCC failed to give FOX or ABC fair notice prior to the broadcasts in question that fleeting expletives and momentary nudity could be found actionably indecent, the Commissions' standards as applied to these broadcasts were vague," the Supreme Court said in its opinion.
