Episode Summary

TV Indecency, Minutemen on the Border and Facelift Diaries
In-coming F.C.C. chairman Kevin Martin promises to toughen penalties for broadcasters who air indecent programming. Chairman Michael Powell levied a record number of fines for decency violations, and the broadcasters put forth the First Amendment. "First Up" this week Tucker talks with F.C.C. commissioner Jonathan Adelstein, one of two Democrats on the five-member panel.

Tucker is joined by Jonah Goldberg of National Review and Shaun Waterman of UPI on our "Plus 2" segment. The panel discusses the Minuteman Project - a one month campout of American volunteers on the Arizona-Mexico border.

And on our "Back Page" Tucker engages authors of The Facelift Diaries, Jill Scharff and Jaedene Levy. The friends and neighbors chronicled their experiences with cosmetic surgery, and speak with Tucker about the reasons for their transformations and our puritanical society.moreless
