    Isn't this nanny statism awesome? Because when you run up the debt from 10 trillion to 16 trillion in a little over 3 years, curse words on TV should be your main priority, not lowering the debt. Doesn't surprise me none, the man never could get his priorities right.

    And what, exactly, should the Supreme Court be doing about the debt?

    Free speech protects offensive speech, case closed. Honestly, I don't even how the FCC got away with montoring radio. But, if the radio or tv station gets some funding from the government then thats a different story.

    Nothing, which is my point, but the Obama administration SHOULD be doing something about it and is not.

    This is standard political strategy. They focus on some bullshit issue to distract the public from the fact they're not doing anything about the real issues. Flag burning, gay marriage, steroids in baseball, even focusing on obamacare during a horrible recession was an distraction.

    You do realize that the "Obama Administration" is more than just one man, right? You think that the "Obama Administration" has stopped working on the economy just because it's also doing its job on other issues. It's remarkable how you jump to so many conclusions based on a stub of an article. We don't know right now, but chances are that the Obama Administration is involved in this because suit was brought by the networks against the FCC, which would make the Justice Department obliged to argue the case for the US government.

    Obama appointed Holder, so it is HIS JD that is binging this issue up. Just like it was his JD that did not charge the black panther party with voter intimidation in 2008. Why is the JD not investigating where Billions of tax payers dollars have disappeared to? And somehow I doubt the networks would just automatically file a suit against the FCC, the FCC would have had to make the first move on this one.
    But back to my point, why are they not concentrating on getting our debt under control and instead concentrating on stupid shit like this?

    Good... it's about time they do something about this... I'm sick to death of all the fucking bleeps on television these days. Let's nip it in the bud one way or another... either allow them to curse, or not.

    Uh, no, not likely. You're not paying attention. I expect that it was THE NETWORKS that are bringing suit against the FCC. You're making wild assumptions.

    That's ludicrous. On what grounds would the FCC bring suit against the networks? There would be no grounds, and any such effort would have been dismissed for lack of standing.

    On what basis do you claim that Obama isn't focusing on the debt? Again, you're making wild assumptions.
