"Cleaning up TV" has been one of the centerpieces of FCC Chairman Kevin J. Martin's tenure as FCC Chairman. Perhaps seeing those efforts get so thoroughly smacked down by the Court of Appeals caused Martin to melt down. In his press statement, he swears more than Bono, Cher, Nicole Ritchie, and President Bush combined ever did over the airwaves. And, he mischaracterizes the decision repeatedly, vilifying the Court for saying that broadcast profanity is "not indecent" and "fine to say" when in fact the court said nothing of the sort. Instead, what the Court decided was that Martin's FCC had failed to rationally justify its substantial expansion of the definition of what constituted "indecency," and that its decisions were so "arbitrary and capricious," and such an abuse of discretion, that they were unlawful. That's a big difference. Anyway, whatever set the usually courtly Martin off, if you read on, make sure the little ones aren't looking over your shoulder.
