CBS fined 3.3 million for teen sex scene but....

The FCC recieved 4,211 complaints. Using the Freedom Of Information act, CBS learned that 100% of the complaints were generated by 2 right wing conservative websites. (The PTC and the American Family Association) None of the people complaining had actually seen the show. According to the complaint process, "FCC can only consider complaints from viewers in the station's broadcast area" CBS alleges none of the complainants saw the show, and the fines are invalid. Interesting to see how this turns out.

Btw, All actors were fully, (if not scantilly clothed).
A tree falling in the forest still offends, even if no one is around to see it.
