FCC Fines ABC Affiliates $1.4M for Partial Nudity

January 15, 2008

Federal Communications Commission fines 52 ABC affiliates a total of $1.4 Million for showing nude buttocks on NYPD Blue. The episode, aired Feb. 25, 2003, included a shot of a woman’s “nude buttocks,” which the FCC found “titillating and shocking.” Commissioners said network cameras dwelled on the woman’s backside too long and too close up to for decency standards. It faulted stations in Middle America for showing the episode between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., a “safe-harbor” window for family programming. http://www.billingsgazette.net/articles/2008/01/30/news/state/35-fccfine.txt
