The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in FCC vs. FOX Television. The case examines the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) tougher enforcement protocol announced in 2004 in reaction to separate instances of foul language and nudity on both FOX and ABC television networks. The Court will decide if the FCC has the constitutional right to enforce rules prohibiting indecent language and nudity on broadcast television and radio.

Both the attorneys and judges use language during this oral argument that some may find offensive. close
