                   DISSENTING STATEMENT OF 

Re:       Complaints against Fox Television Stations, Inc. 
     Regarding Its Broadcast of the ``Keen Eddie'' Program 
     on June 10, 2003, Memorandum Opinion and Order

This Order involves a television program that the majority 
admits ``contains references of a sexual nature that were 
broadcast at a time of day when children were likely to be 
in the audience.''  Yet, the majority concludes that the 
program, in which a prostitute is hired to sexually arouse a 
horse by removing her blouse and to ``extract'' semen from 
the horse, is not indecent because the prostitute is ``never 
seen actually touching'' the horse.  Despite my colleagues' 
assurance that there appeared to be a safe distance between 
the prostitute and the horse, I remain uncomfortable.  I 
respectfully dissent.
