Brent Bozell's Parents Television Council, which single-handedly generated virtually all of the indecency complaints that led to the FCC's recent content crackdown, has filed an amicus brief with a New York federal court asking it to uphold the FCC's actions.

Meanwhile, C-SPAN has announced that it will provide live coverage of the oral arguments in the case beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Dec. 20
