ON TELEVISION
President Obama is on all major networks tonight at 8pm.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court sided with the FCC on the long-running and controversial “fleeting expletives” case. Effectively, the Supreme Court ruled in a close 5-4 vote the FCC could fine broadcast networks in situations when a single expletive is used on live television. Contrary to what broadcasters have argued, the Supreme Court did not find the FCC’s policy on the “fleeting expletives” either “arbitrary or capricious.” This case marks the first ruling on indecency standards in more than 30 years. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia related the defining opinion of the court, saying “The FCC’s new policy and its order finding the broadcasts at issue actionably indecent were neither arbitrary nor capricious.”
