U.S. Supreme Court Divided In Television Expletives Case

November 5, 2008

As of right now, it appears that the U.S. Supreme Court is divided in the case over the use of expletives on television..<br /> .........Washington (ChattahBox) – As of right now, it appears that the U.S. Supreme Court is divided in the case over the use of expletives on television.

The U.S. Supreme Court is trying to decide on a policy that can result in broadcasters being fined if expletives are spoken on live television.

Laywers and justices often referred to the expletives during the case as the S word and F word, without actually saying the terms.

The justices appear split over whether or not the broadcasters should be held liable and fined for what happens.

They reviewed broadcast indecency standards when hearing the case, and debated for 60 minutes.

A lot of this comes after the FCC went after Fox for violating decency rules back in 2002 during a live TV broadcast.
