In June, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision in FCC v. Fox, the “fleeting expletives” First Amendment case examining the proper role of government in policing broadcast content. The decision – reached on due process and notice grounds – means that the larger constitutional issue of the future of government regulation of broadcast television remains open. Our teleforum guests will discuss the Supreme Court decision, what comes next in this decades-long debate, and what it means for the government, broadcasters, and citizens.
- Mr. Dan Isett, Director of Public Policy, Parents Television Council
- Mr. Erik S. Jaffe, Sole Practitioner, Erik S. Jaffe, PC
- Moderator: Hon. Deborah Taylor Tate, Former Commissioner, Federal Communications Commission
