A Decency Crusade Becomes A Fox Hunt

“The Federal Communications Commission said on Tuesday that it would fine 169 Fox television stations $7,000 each, or a total of $1.18 million, for violating indecency rules when it showed a particularly graphic episode of the show “Married by America” last spring… The commission found an April episode of the show violated the indecency rules through a series of sexually suggestive and explicit scenes.” At least one Fox affiliate had refused to air the episode, and will not be fined.
