Appeals court tosses FCC fleeting expletives policy
A federal appeals court on Tuesday found that a government policy that can lead to broadcasters being fined for allowing even a single curse word on live television is unconstitutionally vague.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan tossed out the Federal Communications Commission's policy after finding that it violates the First Amendment.
In 2004, the FCC adopted a policy that profanity referring to sex or excrement is always indecent.
I assume since this ruling is a setback for government regulation, conservatives will applaud it.
