: PROFANE: Ernie Miller digs into the FCC’s f-word decision again and, dig as he might, he still can’t find good law, good definitions, good guidance, or good sense:

The FCC’s new “profane” language doctrine is a mess just waiting to be challenged. The opportunity to embarrass the FCC is there. Which broadcast personality will accept the challenge?

: OFF WITH HIS FINGER: Drudge makes a big deal of American Idol judge Simon Cowell scratching his face with his no-no finger and Fox producers going through talmudic torture over whether this was a gesture or a scratch and whether this should have aired or not in this, the day of boobaphobia.

Is the F-finger the same as the F-word to the FCC?

How much more ludicrious can this get?
