fine

The bluenose theocrat moralists at the FCC are busy again, slamming fines against various networks for naughty words and lewd themes. Biggest fine was $3.6 million (total) against CBS and a bunch of affiliates for airing an episode of "Without A Trace" that featured a teen orgy. I happened to see that episode -- it aired at 10:00, it wasn't that bad and the message certainly wasn't that afterschool group sex was a good idea.

It's absurd, it's reactionary. Shows depicting murder and violence are OK and are on all the time, but no dirty words or teen sex (without nudity), please.
