Free Speech Issue Before Supreme Court

Supreme Court to hear case about indecent speech on TV - CNN.com

Hopefully they use common sense and rule the FCC has no authority to fine private owned companies for a word.

If they make it legal to prevent any and all curse words from being uttered on national TV without heavy fines imposed........

Who gets to decide what words are offensive and vulgar?
Who decided what words are currently offensive and vulgar?
Where does the line get drawn?

Screw all this, FCC can get over it, but they're not going to get us started down the slope.

You decide. By turning the channel. If they rule in favor of Fox then it's not like you are going to see this whole new era of TV with every other word being **** or ****. What you will see though is no one being fined for a screw up on live TV.

I'm not saying it'll turn to that...it will stay the same unless the FCC decides to take it away. I agree with you Brent, you decide to watch it, you can decide to change the channel.
