    I hope the FCC loses its power to filter what's on TV.

    110%.

    There's these nifty child protections on TV's nowadays. So easy, even a caveman could do them.

    The court will strike down the separate standards for broadcast v cable channels, but leave the decision which gave the FCC the power to do this in place. This will make it so hard for the FCC to actually do anything that they will only fine egregious violations of the standards, letting the casual cussing that got Fox into trouble alone.
