ABC Network Stations Facing FCC Fines

Fifty-two ABC television network stations are facing a Federal Communications Commission fine over a scene in an episode of NYPD Blue.  ABC’s defense is that they took the appropriate steps, that anyone watching NYPD Blue should have known by then what they were choosing to do, and that what was shown wasn’t inappropriate anyway.  Here is the AP story and here is the Reuters story.  ABC, of course, is owned by The Walt Disney Company.
