  • Trivia

    • The theme of this episode is the FCC new indecency rules. During a live news coverage in Afghanistan, an RPG flew over and exploded close to an NBS journalist and the soldier she was interviewing. The soldier uttered the F-word. The FCC wants to fine NBS and all its affiliates 73 millions dollars because of this utterance.

      In a recent hearing in front of the U.S. 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, the lawyer for the FCC explained that news (live or not) are exempted from the rule.
      This means that this specific scenario would not warrant any action by the FCC under current regulations.
