Yesterday, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the FCC’s indecency enforcement policy citing it as “unconstitutionally vague and chilling.” The Supreme Court had overturned the Second Court’s initial finding that the FCC’s policy was an “arbitrary and capricious” change in policy and sent the case back again. In its latest decision, a three-judge panel from the Second Court found the FCC’s decision, involving swearing on awards shows on FOX, as “impermissibly vague.” The Second Court said more specifically, “Under the current policy, broadcasters must choose between not airing or censoring controversial programs and risking massive fines or possibly even loss of their licenses,” said the court, “and it is not surprising which option they choose. Indeed, there is ample evidence in the record that the FCC’s indecency policy has chilled protected speech.” The Second Court further stated, “We now hold that the FCC’s policy violates the First Amendment because it is unconstitutionally vague, creating a chilling effect that goes far beyond the fleeting expletives at issue here. Thus, we grant the petition for review and vacate the FCC’s order and the indecency policy underlying it.”

Yesterday, George Steinbrenner, iconic owner of the New York Yankees died following a massive heart attack in Tampa.  He had just turned 80 years old on July 4th.  Steinbrenner owned the Yankees since 1973, buying the team from CBS. In recent years, the control of the ball club was passed to his sons and general manager, though he will be remembered as bringing the Yankees back to major prominence and making the team into one of the most prestigious sports brands in the world. He launched the YES Network in 2002 which airs the majority of Yankee games in New York along with other original programs. President/CEO of YES Network, Tracy Dolgin released this statement: “We at YES are saddened by the passing of George M. Steinbrenner. He was a New York icon and a sports icon, a true visionary who will be greatly missed. His vision of a team-owned regional sports network for the Yankees, resulting in the formation of the YES Network, revolutionized the sports business. Mr. Steinbrenner’s influence on the world of sports is tremendous, and will be felt long after he’s gone. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the Steinbrenner family and the Yankees organization.”
