Court to FCC: Go F yourself
Broadcasters Win Appeal Of FCC’s Profanity Ruling
A federal appeals court tossed out an indecency ruling against Rupert Murdoch’s Fox television network yesterday and broadly questioned whether the Federal Communications Commission has the right to police the airwaves for offensive language.
In a 2 to 1 decision, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit in New York ruled that the FCC went too far in issuing a 2006 decision against Fox Broadcasting for separate incidents in 2002 and 2003 after singer Cher and celebrity Nicole Richie each uttered an expletive on live television.</em>
To which TTP says FUCK YEAH!
