When Does F*** Not Mean F***?: FCC v. Fox Television Stations and Protecting Emotive Speech

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Supreme Court of the United States demonstrated in its current term that it doesn’t always deal cogently with non-traditional language. In FCC v. Fox Television Stations, the justices became sidetracked into attempting to define the f-word and then to determine whether, when used as a fleeting expletive rather than repeatedly, the word is indecent for broadcast purposes. The Court would do well to avoid definitions and heed Justice John Marshall Harlan’s advice in Cohen v. California to provide protection for the emotive, as well as the cognitive, element of speech.
