David Solomon, the FCC's chief of enforcement, says that given current public sentiment, he would rule differently than he did last year when he said that Bono had not violated broadcast decency standards when he used the F-word during an acceptance speech at the Golden Globe Awards. In an interview with today's Wall Street Journal, commented: "Given the reaction of the commissioners and others [following the Janet Jackson incident at the Super Bowl], we wouldn't be deciding it that way today."

The Bono incident and the Janet incident are mutually exclusive and the Jackson incident should not affect the opinion of the FCC when it comes to Bono. They origianlly said that Bono's F-word usuage was not considdered indecent since he was using it as an adverb modifying "brilliant". He was not talking about the actual action of sexual intercourse, he was just using the word as a replacement for "very" or "really" or "extraordinarily".

I don't see how Janet Jackson's tit would change this.

Yes, this was all stated in the article above. I thought it was an interesting follow up.

He's saying that in light of recent boobie-related events, the ruling would have a different outcome were it to happen tomorrow instead of one year ago.

It was a hypothetical premise, one that I thought was interesting, but mostly sad.
