In a landmark decision that will assure no man will again be persecuted for telling another man to fuck a chicken on live television (unless the Supreme Court overturns this), a New York appeals court has ruled against the FCC's strict indecency rules for broadcast. The LA Times has the full story, but in short, the three-judge panel has decided the FCC's strict policies against live TV expletives and such are "unconstitutionally vague" and create a "chilling effect"--a description that makes the old policies suddenly seem very scary. The ruling is a big victory for broadcasters, as networks could previously be hit with fines of as much to $325,000 per affiliate every time some madman would run in front of a live feed and start shouting F-bombs, but now that's totally cool.
