U.S. Supreme Court holds oral argument on FCC’s power to regulate indecency

The LA Times reports:

Reporting from Washington — The Supreme Court justices talked about indecency and foul language today, but they did so without using any of the actual words that federal regulators hope to ban from television and radio broadcasts.

Chief Justice John G. Roberts and Justice Antonin Scalia made clear that they strongly support the drive to keep the F-word and the S-word off broadcasts during the hours when children and families are likely to be watching.

But they may not speak for the majority.
