Indecency wins; again!

from One Million Moms
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday threw out the FCC's $550,000 indecency fine against CBS for the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show that ended with Janet Jackson's breast-baring "wardrobe malfunction."
CBS purposely "shopped around" in order to find a "friendly court" in which to file a law suit against the FCC. As a result, three liberal judges callously dismissed the fine, essentially giving networks court-approval to broadcast nud-ty on tax-payer funded airwaves anytime of the day or night.
This dangerous precedent now jeopardizes other FCC fines currently being appealed by the morally bankrupt NBC, CBS, ABC, and Fox networks. As a result of the ruling by three judges, networks have won the right to do what they've wanted for a long time - to be as nasty as they want to be.
Senator John Rockefeller has introduced the "Protecting Children from Indecent Programming Act" (S. 1780) which will inherently stop abuse from activist judges and allow the FCC to fine stations for airing even a single word or image of indecency on television.
Ask your Senator to sponsor and vote in favor of S. 1780 today! Without this law, the FCC is very limited in its ability to hold network stations accountable for indecency.
