Here's Commissioner Tate's statement on the Supreme Court's grant of cert in Fox v. FCC.
I am pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court has granted the petition for certiorari filed by the Solicitor General. Protecting children from inappropriate programming continues to be one of my top priorities. I hope that the Court’s decision will give broadcasters clarity regarding the use of profanity, even fleeting profanity, on the public airwaves, at times when children are most likely to be in the audience.
