Can six people actually be considered a protest?
TheWrap.com generously applied the protest label to a tiny group of Occupy Wall Street protesters railing against the right to cuss on the small screen.
The Supreme Court began hearing arguments today about censorship issues pertaining to television, highlighted by cases like Cher’s use of the “F” word on a 2002 Billboard music telecast. And those uniquely fragrant Occupy Wall Street types were there to lend some moral clarity to the debate.
About half a dozen protestors were in front of the court yelled slogans like: “You can kill people half a world away, but you can’t say ‘fuck….'”
Meanwhile, inside the building, the justices wrestled with whether the FCC has the constitutional right to enforce rules prohibiting obscene language and nudity on broadcast television and radio.
If the Occupy censorship movement swells, and who thinks it won’t, the next event could see a baker’s dozen protesters fighting the censorship loving one percent.
