Big networks united in indecency case


Fox Television Network defeated the FCC at the Second Circuit in a case concerning the FCC’s ability to issue fines for fleeting moments of broadcast indecency. The FCC has asked the Supreme Court to hear an appeal, and CBS and NBC have joined with Fox in asking the Supreme Court to let the lower court ruling stand. Now, according to reports, ABC is backing the other three nets in their effort to keep the case from being heard at the top court in the wake of the 1.43M finding against it and its affiliates over an epidose of "NYPD Blue."
