[JURIST] The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced late Tuesday that it is seeking a $1.18 million fine against 169 Fox television stations over their alleged broadcast of indecent material during an April 2003 episode of the reality show "Married By America." The FCC voted 5-0 in favor of fining the stations $7,000 each after receiving 159 complaints about the broadcast. The agency cited depictions of vulgarity and sexual activity, including nudity, being aired at a time when many children were likely to be viewing. Fox denies that the scenes, which used pixilation to blur any nudity, were indecent.
