3. The Supreme Court Weighs in on the F Word
Today, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case rooted in the use of expletives and partial nudity during primetime broadcast television. The main examples include Cher's use of the F word during the Billboard music awards and an episode of NYPD Blue on ABC that included a seven-second clip of a woman's nude backside. According to the Federal Communications Commission, these examples violated its clauses against airing of "indecent material" before 10 p.m.. Ultimately, the court will decide what should be considered indecent and whether the FCC's current indecency policy violates the constitution. Stay tuned ... Just don't swear.
