Center For Creative Voices Decides To Oppose FCC Indecency Remand
August 11, 2006 at 6:03 AM (PT)
A group representing the creative community in opposing indecency regulation has reversed course and now opposes the FCC's request to remand a challenge to four indecency fines for further review. The CENTER FOR CREATIVE VOICES told the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit that it changed its mind on the FCC's request based on CBS and FOX' opposition to the Commission's maneuver and the FCC's own contradictory behavior in trying to slow down the Second Circuit proceeding while simultaneously trying to speed up the JANET JACKSON/SUPER BOWL case in the Third Circuit.
A hearing on the remand request in the Second Circuit is scheduled for AUGUST 29; the case involves two incidents on FOX' BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS telecasts, an episode of ABC's "NYPD BLUE," and CBS' "EARLY SHOW."
