FCC Rules Saving Private Ryan Not Indecent

After scaring numerous ABC affiliates from airing the Steven Spielberg war epic (on Veteran's Day, no less) the FCC released a statement that showing Saving Private Ryan, which contains graphic violence and profanity, did not violate indecency guidelines.

Of course, by not making this announcement before this year's showing (the Oscar winning film had previously aired on network TV), it still had the net effect of removing potentially "offensive" material from many stations airwaves.

Nice work.
