American Air

The cost of saying FUCK over American airwaves just jumped in price a whole shitload. There had been a lot of dirty talk on the streets of raising the FCC's fines from about $32,500 to $325,000 per violation of the broadcast indecency rules, and now President Bush has made it official.

How does the FCC define indecent? If "in context [it] depicts or describes sexual or excretory activities or organs in a patently offensive manner as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium", but for indecent speech the FCC has determined we can let it loose after 10pm and before 6am.

This makes rules much more lax in Canada, but difficult for Canadian TV producers who want to sell their shows to the states.
