TV teen sex orgy complaints came from people who never saw the show
The FCC fined CBS $3 million for the teen sex orgy scene in Without a Trace. (View it, if you dare, <A href="http://blogfiles.wfmu.org/KF/2006/04/WithoutaTrace_Teen_orgy.wmv">here). Now CBS is saying the fine is invalid because the people who complained didn't even know what they were complaining about. They were just robotically following the orders of their cult leaders at the PTC and the American Family Association

http://www.boingboing.net/withoutatracecghrs.jpg CBS says that 100% of the 4,211 complaints filed with the feds about this episode of "Without A Trace" came from web-based e-mail form letters originating from 2 right-wing christian groups (the PTC and the American Family Association). Only two complainers claimed to have seen the show, but made an inaccurate reference to another scene, thus blowing their cover. But the brunt of the issue lies with a technicality in the indecency complaint process: the FCC can only consider complaints from viewers in the station's broadcast area. Therefore, CBS alleges, the PTC and AFA-initiated complaints against "Without A Trace" are invalid.
