I Hate the FCC

I do. I can't think of anything worthwhile this group has done.

A while back the FCC levied a $3.3 MILLION dollar fine against CBS because of an episode of "Without a Trace" that had an implied teenage group sex scene (there was NO nudity). The FCC claimed they received 4,211 complaints... but reports now show only TWO of the complainers actually saw the episode and all the others were prompted by the American Family Association's email campaign. This information was unearthed by utilizing the Freedom of Information Act... Two people. (source1. source2)

Two people? The other 4,209 never even saw the show? Ugh. Don't get me started...
