FCC to Fine ABC of Naked Butt on NYPD Blue

Posted By JessNess on Jan 26, 2008 at 5:32PM

In a sign that the federal airwaves police may ratchet up their campaign against racy programming, the FCC on Friday determined that a woman's naked butt is indecent enough to net ABC a proposed fine of $1.43 million.

The fine proposal, announced late Friday, comes as much of the regulatory regime the commission uses to fine stations is under judicial review.

Commissioner Deborah Taylor Tate said Friday's action puts broadcasters on notice.

"Our action today should serve as a reminder to all broadcasters that Congress and American families continue to be concerned about protecting children from harmful material and that the FCC will enforce the laws of the land vigilantly," she wrote in a statement accompanying the fine notice. "In fact, pursuant to the Broadcast Decency Act of 2005, Congress increased the maximum authorized fines ten-fold. The law is simple. If a broadcaster makes the decision to show indecent programming, it must air between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. This is neither difficult to understand nor burdensome to implement."

In its decision the FCC ruled that the February 25, 2003 episode of the ABC program "NYPD Blue" in which a nude woman is surprised by a young boy as she prepares to shower is too much for broadcast TV.

"We find that the programming at issue is within the scope of our indecency definition because it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs -- specifically an adult woman's buttocks," the FCC wrote. "Although ABC argues, without citing any authority, that the buttocks are not a sexual organ, we reject this argument, which runs counter to both case law and common sense."

The commission levied the maximum fine it could at the time against ABC. It then multiplied the $27,500 fine by the 52 ABC stations that aired the episode during Central Standard Time and Mountain Standard Time.

ABC said the FCC's erred on Friday.

"'NYPD Blue,' which aired on ABC from 1993-2005, was an Emmy Award-winning drama, broadcast with appropriate parental warnings as well as V-chip enabled program ratings from the time such ratings were implemented," the company said. "When the brief scene in question was telecast almost five years ago, this critically acclaimed drama had been on the air for a decade and the realistic nature of its storylines was well known to the viewing public. ABC feels strongly that the FCC's finding is inconsistent with prior precedent from the Commission, the indecency statute, and the First Amendment, and we intend to oppose the proposed fine."

Last year, a federal appeals court in New York threw out the FCC's rule that said a fleeting reference gets broadcasters a fine for indecency. In its decision, the court told the commission that it failed to give a good reason for its decision and likely couldn't find a good reason if it had to. The Bush Administration has appealed the decision to the Supreme Court.

The "notice of apparent liability" the FCC issued on Friday does not deal with a "fleeting incident." The commission has been noticeably silent on indecency since the court rebuke.

While obscene speech has no constitutional protection, indecent speech does. Under the law, FCC rules and court decisions the commission can fine broadcasters for airing indecent speech outside of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. safe harbor.

Material is indecent if it "in context, depicts or describes sexual or excretory activities or organs in a patently offensive manner as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium." Under current law broadcasters face a fine of $325,000 per incident.

Seriously this is ridiculous. It happened 5 years ago. Shouldn't there be some sort of statute of limitations on this. Plus its an ass. Come on! Everyone has seen an ass in their lifetime. This country is so uptight about nudity. I'm not saying that there should be full frontal nudity on t.v. but a butt should not be cause for a million dollar fine. Plus wasn't NYPD always a late night show so its not like any 6 year old kid was watching it and if they were than they should fine the parents cause that kid should be in bed. FCC seriously needs to pull that huge tree trunk of a stick out of their ass and relax and stop trying to make choices for what is right and what is wrong. They make the biggest deals out of nothing (anybody remember Janet?...I watched that half time and never saw a nipple)

Victims of tiger attack were drunk, high and provoking animals

Posted By JessNess on Jan 17, 2008 at 10:47PM

One of the three victims of San Francisco Zoo tiger attack was intoxicated and admitted to yelling and waving at the animal while standing atop the railing of the big cat enclosure, police said in court documents filed Thursday.

Paul Dhaliwal, 19, told the father of Carlos Sousa Jr., 17, who was killed, that the three yelled and waved at the tiger but insisted they never threw anything into its pen to provoke the cat, according to a search warrant affidavit obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle.

"As a result of this investigation, (police believe) that the tiger may have been taunted/agitated by its eventual victims," according to Inspector Valerie Matthews, who prepared the affidavit. Police believe that "this factor contributed to the tiger escaping from its enclosure and attacking its victims," she said.

Sousa's father, Carlos Sousa Sr., said Dhaliwal told him the three stood on a 3-foot-tall metal railing a few feet from the edge of the tiger moat. "When they got down they heard a noise in the bushes, and the tiger was jumping out of the bushes on him (Paul Dhaliwal)," the documents said.

Police found a partial shoe print that matched Paul Dhaliwal's on top of the railing, Matthews said in the documents.

The papers said Paul Dhaliwal told Sousa that no one was dangling his legs over the enclosure. Authorities believe the tiger leaped or climbed out of the enclosure, which had a wall 4 feet shorter than the recommended minimum.

The affidavit also cites multiple reports of a group of young men taunting animals at the zoo, the Chronicle reported.

Mark Geragos, an attorney for the Dhaliwal brothers, did not immediately return a call late Thursday by The Associated Press for comment. He has repeatedly said they did not taunt the tiger.

Calls to Sousa and Michael Cardoza, an attorney for the Sousa family, also weren't returned.

Toxicology results for Dhaliwal showed that his blood alcohol level was 0.16 — twice the legal limit for driving, according to the affidavit. His 24-year-old brother, Kulbir, and Sousa also had alcohol in their blood but within the legal limit, Matthews wrote.

All three also had marijuana in their systems, Matthews said. Kulbir Dhaliwal told police that the three had smoked pot and each had "a couple shots of vodka" before leaving San Jose for the zoo on Christmas Day, the affidavit said.

Police found a small amount of marijuana in Kulbir Dhaliwal's 2002 BMW, which the victims rode to the zoo, as well as a partially filled bottle of vodka, according to court documents.

Investigators also recovered messages and images from the cell phones, but apparently nothing incriminating in connection with the tiger attack, the Chronicle reported.

Zoo spokesman Sam Singer said he had not seen the documents but believed the victims did taunt the animal, even though they claim they hadn't.

"Those brothers painted a completely different picture to the public and the press," Singer said. "Now it's starting to come out that what they said is not true."

The ENTIRE Britney Spears Piece of Me video

Posted By JessNess on Dec 14, 2007 at 9:19PM

I think its the UK version

here it is in its full glory? Im just not impressed with her comeback. I will admit its better than the last one but not by much.

Here are some points I would like to make to Britney
1. Whipping your extensions around while pushing out your lips do not make you sexy. Follow Tyra's school of modeling and smile with the eyes
2. Your lyrics of your song would be more meaningful if you were actually turning your life around. Instead you are doing everything the paps want you to. Believe me hun they do not need to flip you off to get you riled up.
3. We know you party-there is no need to party more in the video
4. Go on vacation

Faux Fall color

Posted By JessNess on Nov 6, 2007 at 10:18PM

I live and grew up in SoCal. Everyone knows that fall really does not exist here. Trees do not loose their leaves gracefully. We are not surrounded by the reds, oranges, gold etc that is characteristic of the season. We probably only know about fall thanks to fashion :rotfl:

Anyways I try to bring in my touch of fall color to my apartment every season. Here is how Im doing it now
