Court throws out Fox’s profanity case

A federal court has thrown out the FCC’s profanity ruling against Fox over two Billboard Music Awards broadcasts and said the agency’s “fleeting expletives” policy was “failing to articulate a reason basis for its change in policy.”

You can download the decision here (thanks to TV Barn for the link; you must have a PDF reader to view the document.)

Finally, a victory for common sense.

And of course, now the idiot politicians are urging the idiot FCC to take the case to the Supreme Court.

The 1st Amendment will reign supreme. Not the wishes of stupid politicians and an overzealous FCC, who wants to protect kids from profanities, sex, and violence on TV. But it seems fruitless when kids can get shot – and killed – on a city bus.
