Media Law

By Jarra Gojolo

FCC v. Fox Television Stations, Inc. was a court case in 2008 about if the FCC’s inconsistency in their enforcement of expletive rules in programming. The Billboard Music Awards, broadcast by Fox, three expletives were used between 2002 and 2003, which led to them being basically sanctioned by the FCC. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Fox, calling the sanctions unnecessary. https://www.oyez.org/cases/2008/07-582. I think as long as the profanity is not frequent and none of it is malicious, it’s fine to have a little bit of it in n awards show.
