$*(! FCC Can Fine For Fleeting Expletives

Hot off the presses... a 5 to 4 Supreme Court decision reversing a lower court's order that smacked the FCC declaring that "fleeting" uses of the F-word and the S-word could be indecent. The lower court said that FCC was being capricious and arbitrary. Writing for the court, Justice Scalia said the law allows the FCC to fine broadcasters for those "actionably indecent" words without being capricious and arbitrary.
