Federal appeals court rules FCC’s indecency policy too vague

Leave it to Bono.

“We now hold that the FCC's policy violates the First Amendment because it is unconstitutionally vague, creating a chilling effect that goes far beyond the fleeting expletives at issue here,” the panel of appeals court judges said in a written ruling on Tuesday.

ABC, CBS, Faux and NBC cheered the decision.

The case stemmed from Bono's used of an expletive during the 2003 Golden Globe awards, which resulted in a fine for the network that aired the event.

Look for the airwaves to be a bit more saucy!!
