SCOTUS rules on indecency case

From our friends at Porn Harms:
The U. S. Supreme Court ruled on an important indecency case today, one in which Morality in Media filed a legal brief.  The court ruled that two TV networks, Fox and ABC, were not given “fair warning” that use of the F-word and nudity of the backside of a female actress were indecent before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) ruled the performances indecent.
The ruling is disappointing because we believe that Fox and ABC should know that the F-word and nudity are off limits when broadcast into our homes.  Yet, it is critical to understand that the FCC is still free to enforce indecency law after today’s ruling.
Fox and ABC may have gotten by with broadcasting indecency in this case, but they and the other networks certainly have “fair notice” now that the FCC considers the F-word and nudity to be indecent when broadcast on Network TV.
Today, Morality In Media called on the FCC to begin vigorously enforcing federal indecency law and they will work with their good friends at Movieguide, the Christian Film and Television Commission, and the Parents Television Council to make sure that they do.
Broadcasters do not have a right to turn network television into a cesspool at the expense of children and those who wish to avoid the foul language and pornography that is now so common on cable television.
If you see indecency on broadcast TV, (not cable) please file a complaint with the FCC at: http://www.fcc.gov/guides/obscenity-indecency-and-profanity
