Jane Fonda, The FCC Is Listening!
Jane Fonda better wash her mouth out with soap! The Federal Communications Commission is trying to impose stricter regulations for what they call â€œfleeting expletivesâ€ — like when the Barberella star dropped the c-word on The Today Show a couple weeks ago and the world freaked out. Thus far, the Appeals Court has been stalling and put the case, brought by networks like Fox to stop the FCC from being able to fine an unscripted curse, on hold. So the FCC is running to the daddy of all courts, The Supreme Court, to get a quicker and more finite ruling. If the Court agrees to take the case, they could hear arguments as soon as the Fall. Better bite down on your legwarmers next time, Jane. [FMQB]
