Court Throws Out FCC Fine Against ABC For 'NYPD Blue' - Broadcasting & Cable
Campaigners warned today that the door has been opened for more nudity to be broadcast on television after a New York appeals court overturned a Federal Communications Commission ruling against ABC. This ruling will only serve to embolden the networks to air even more graphic material,' said Tim Winter, president of The Parents Television Council, a group that supports strong broadcast-indecency rules. There was absolutely nothing fleeting or accidental about it,' Mr Winter said in a statement. This was a clear breach of the decency law. And now, nearly eight years after the episode aired, ABC is told it doesn't have to abide by the law.
