Probably not. My impression is that American courts have rule rather consistently of late that :
1- All that is published does not need to be suitable for a 12 year old.
2- That parents rather than the government are supposed to control what their children see.
As I understand it, they didn't take nudity and the F word off regular cable because the law required it, they did it so that a broader audience would buy more channels.
The funny thing is that cable has walked itself back in time. Back in the 1980's we thought TV had finally grown up- it wasn't censored very much and HBO was in the regular cable package. Then something happened, but it was in a gap when I was living in a trailer on a sand dune with no cable and only three broadcast stations. It got to the point where I would actually follow the "agg report" in the morning.
