The FCC plan to slap ABC with a $1.4 million fine for showing bare ass on a NYPD Blue 5 years ago. The FCC said that the episode which first aired in 2003 “contains explicit and graphic depictions of sexual organs. The scene depicts multiple, close-range views of an adult woman’s naked buttocks. We find that the broadcast dwells on and repeats the sexual material. We have held that repetition and persistent focus on sexual or excretory material is a relevant factor in evaluating the potential offensiveness of broadcasts. Here, the scene revolves around the woman’s nudity and includes several shots of her naked buttocks. The material is thus dwelled upon and repeated.” That turned me on, but I’m sure seeing the scene wouldn’t have.
The FCC said, “Our action today should serve as a reminder to all broadcasters that Congress and American families continue to be concerned about protecting children from harmful material and that the FCC will enforce the laws of the land vigilantly.”
ABC said that “the buttocks are not a sexual organ.” They are fighting the allegations.
Oh ABC! My buttocks are definitely a sexual organ. Just ask them. They get more sex than I do. That being said, the FCC is stupid. Bare ass is not ok, but seeing sluts get blown up and shot at is ok?
Can the FCC also fine the Oxygen network for putting Tori Spelling’s face on TV? Her face offends me much more than bare ass.
