A Large Over-reaction

FCC Proposes $1.4 Million Fine for Woman's 'Nude Buttocks' on NYPD Blue:

"The Federal Communications Commission has proposed a $1.4 million fine against 52 ABC Television Network stations over a 2003 broadcast of cop drama NYPD Blue.

The fine is for a scene where a boy surprises a woman as she prepares to take a shower. The scene depicted "multiple, close-up views" of the woman's "nude buttocks" according to an agency order issued late Friday....

The agency said the show was indecent because "it depicts sexual organs and excretory organs - specifically an adult woman's buttocks."
