I'm amused to see that the court bleeped the F-word in its opinion.

So childish of them. It's like a gyno writing "lady parts" in her chart.

"No-no place" would be even better. "Patient was diagnosed with polyps inside her no-no place. Diagnosis: cooties."

Actually, the ruling did touch on the Constitutionality of wardrobe malfunctions, it simply said that because the networks were not previously informed that incidental expletives would be subject, they could not fine them.

/If I'm reading it correctly.

"The commission 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," Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the majority. As he was reading the majority decision, a gust of wind came in through the window, undoing his robe and revealing that he wore nothing under it but a barbed cock ring.

At the end of the opinion the court sort of warned the FCC not to draft a broad policy in response because that could be struck down if the court finally attacked the First Amendment question head on.

Florida's sodomy statute was like that. The legislators couldn't bring themselves to say "oral or anal sex", so they referred to it as "the abominable and detestable crime against nature", and sentenced people to twenty years in prison for doing...whatever that is.

That's interesting. It sounded to me like they punted, but I wonder if they are tacitly telling the FCC that they ultimately have an insurmountable burden on the first amendment issue.

Unless the FCC drafts a policy that sounds like a long-winded Carlin monologue. Oh that would be rich.

Do you mean Massachusetts? That exact phrase and sentence is in MGL 272-34. It was the standard language inherited from England. Everybody knew what it meant.

Really. In Europe they show boobies in tv commercials and we all know it's a Mad Max/Clockwork Orange-style dystopia over there.

Welcome to America, where you can show 24 on prime time, but if it's a woman enjoying sex it's gotta be outside safe harbor.

Looking at boobs turn men into sex maniacs. We must protect the children from thinking about sex! Now watch me breast feed my baby or you hate nature and women and the Lord.

"Swear words" are a relic of ignorant superstitious times.
There is nothing "bad" about any particular word.
A person can be far more "offensive" without using a single "swear word".
It's ridiculous that I can't say fark, biatch, or Boobies on Fark.
 
2012-06-21 03:28:35 PM
Maybe they can visit the Michigan House of Representatives and tell them it's OK to say "vagina".

People should keep their fuglies* covered and I am unanimous in that opinion.

I'll never forget the mother in Florida who pitched a fit because thanks to a local production of The Vagina Monologues, her little snowflake now knows what a vagina is. She lamented, imploring us to feel her pain, that she was then having to tell her daughter that "vagina" was a no-no word. And she should use the polite term: "front butt".

I'll bet they actually didn't but CNN doesn't have the farking balls to farking print the farking word "fark".

Oh, that's right. Guess who else doesn't?

By the way, the Seven Words You Can't Say On Television are printed out in the text of FCC v Pacifica and are also probably illegal to view under the 1996 Telecommunications Act.

Oh, nevermind, they got rid of the pesky speech provisions but left in all the deregulation. But who cares about actual important shiat like media ownership when what we really want to talk about is tits and farking.

Amercia is in a toilet bowl, ready to swirl.

so.... if there is a warning before the program... we get boobs now on network TV right?
at least basic farking cable.
someone tell me this paves the way for boobs on TV. I get "all the boobs i suppose i really NEED" from internets pron, but it doesnt fullfill the "all the boobs i can POSSIBLY see all the time" contingent.

No, no, no. If the FCC warns the network that they'll be fined if they show boobs even unintentionally, then they can fine the network. This ruling does nothing to increase the likelihood of seeing boobage on network television. Unfortunately.

Haha, I wish. I think the warning part applies to the FCC; they can't just fine the broadcasters without warning them in advance what they could be fined for.

Yeah, lot of legalese in the language there. I'm not so sure this is the big victory many people think it is. There looks to be a lot of gray.

I've let my 9 year old watch Futurama and The Simpsons for years. He's the most adjusted and intelligent kid in his class.

He knows what NOT to repeat because we TALK about it. He's not telling anybody to kiss his shiny metal ass or anything.

The FCC doesn't regulate basic cable, never has. There's no boobs on The Walking Dead because they would lose advertisers, not because of the FCC.
 
2012-06-21 03:55:37 PM
I read this to say that the FCC and broadcasters now have to be stricter in the definition of their rules. Shouldn't this end up meaning LESS swearing and nudity on TV, since they will be sure to make the rules extremely strict?
