>>Wait a minute, how can the FCC fine the CBS relays for just carrying 
something?  That's not fair.  They weren't expecting this to happen....<<

That what I meant by "the ultimate 'gotcha.'"  Theoretically they can fine the stations...it was, by FCC definition, indecent.  Realistically, it would be grossly unfair, and tied up in the courts for quite a while.

Remember too that CBS, although not regulated as a network, owns TV stations which would be subject to fines too.
