In a Supreme Court ruling quite different from Judge Woolsey's a half-century earlier, FCC v. Pacifica Foundation laid a foundation of concrete onto the Commission's ability, nay mandate, to monitor the public airwaves for obscenity between the "safe harbor" of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., presumably the hours ...
“The T-word has historically been considered off-limits for broadcast TV, as was affirmed in the FCC v. Pacifica Foundation case.

As for Carlin, he said in his 2009 autobiography, “FCC vs ...

Broadcasting, Justice Stevens wrote in Pacifica, is "uniquely pervasive" and more available to ...
This year will also mark 40 years since the U.S. Supreme Court handed down one of its most influential First Amendment holdings in The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) v.
