CBS To Air 9/11 Documentary In Spite of New Legislation, FCC Clampdown

In spite of the newly okayed increase in broadcast indecency fines, CBS plans to re-broadcast the documentary "9/11", made by French filmmakers Gedeon and Jules Naudet without cuts. The film, which first ran in 2002, has been updated and carries information about the surviving firefighters mentioned in the original. The filmmakers and CBS note that the strong language in "9/11" might offend, but think that it belongs within the context of the documentary. They plan to run advisories before the film airs.
