    Too bad they didn't say the FCC is arbitrary and capricious...

    Amen to that.

    But in fairness to the FCC, they are trying to enforce laws that are intentionally vague.

    Indeed; I doubt "wardrobe malfuctions" were ever codified. ;)

    As a First Amendment fundamentalist I say "bravo." I am sick of government attempts at morality regulation and believe that when it comes to speech there should be no restrictions what so ever. The wheat will separate itself from the chaff and I do not think it is government's place to regulate this. Especially not when their positions come from a moral or religious position.

    I have to disagree.

    It is never OK to yell "Movie" in a crowded firehouse.

    Or something like that.

    An acceptable exception. Also making specific threats of violence or inciting same through specific instructions. But this is not the same thing as language, sex, political or religious speech, etc. Offensive speech is free speech. The Constitution does not protect people from becoming offended.

    Tom you make a good point in your sarcasm. There will be a market for children's programming, programming for people who just don't want to hear that language, and/or religious programming. Why we have to censor it for everyone is a mystery.

    In Europe, the soft core porn comes on over the air at 10:00 PM.

    Ah, but there already is a market for children's programming, programming for people who just don't want to hear that language, or for people who don't give a shit how people express themselves. What this appears to do, is muck things up for the people who just don't want to hear that language.
