up to 300 feet of molten rock. what should you see or not see on television? should cable networks be able to show more than broadcast networks? the super prem court is hearing a new case about that. we're joined by dan isa for the parent's television council and carta phillips, who represents fox and other media in that case. thanks for being with us tonight. i appreciate it. mr. isa, let's start with you. let me get your case? >> this case will decide once in foral the -- broadcast law. the supreme court has in attain, whether or not the broadcast networks could be more like paid cable. >> i assume you want regulation to continue in broadcast networks. >> broadcast decency rules has existed. parents rely on them every day. for them to go away would be a shock to millions of parents
5:34 pm
and families. >> you believe the supreme court should reverse, broadcast programming should not be the subject of greater regulation than cable tv. that's not fair. >> that's our view. dan and i agree, we hope the supreme court will resolve the issue once and for all. the hope, court will recognize the discrimination with respect to broadcast media has to have and the broadcasters should be treated the same as cable, internet and other mass media providers. >> and they have more at 10:00 when children aren't fighting. why fight it? what's the big deal. >> the content is on live programming. unfortunately the live programs that particularly the sports events and other programs like that don't tend to take place at 10:00 at night. they take place during the day and earlier in the evening. there's little question that the fcc's approach places a significant chill on live
5:35 pm
program where you have less control on what's going to be broadcast. >> what about the 7 second rule? doesn't that work? >> the experience, it's not that easy. particularly if you're trying to figure out on the fly what images you may see at the same time as serp language -- certain language that may pop up in the circumstances. to be sure, there's some instances in which the seven second rules have bleeped out materials that both fox and regulators would prefer to not broadcast. there's lots of instances it doesn't work that way. the problem, the federal government now purr ports to impose in the 2500 fines in each station when there's that kind of a mistake. >> i have to ask the colleague, robert sparks was quoted in the usa paper, it's hard to find parents who don't agree a lot of stuff is -- to screen what
5:36 pm
they see. is that the parent's job? >> certainly. no one will argue that parents aren't are the first and last line of defense when it comes to protecting children. we're talking specifically in this case is the broadcast media. this station and everyone like it, operates with a free license to use the publicly owned airwaves in a way that's consistent with what the law calls the public interest. there's nothing in the public interest that says we have to have increasing amounts of decent content, foul language, that type of material, on it when children are, are watching. mr. phillips makes a great point and they are perfectly free to do so after 10:00, when the children are not in the audience. court and the only thing phillips is arguing, broadcast networks should have the ability to air limited amounts of that content when we know when children are watching. that's why millions of parents are concerned. >> the supreme court will have the final say.
5:37 pm
i will take the issue on tomorrow. carter phillips, attorney represent aring fox and other media and the case. thank you four being with us tonight. >> thank you. coming up tonight, a colorado teen puts up a fight after her yearbook photo is yanked. an act of kindness for . hello, progresso.

5:48 pm
for the precipitation to actually cool the atmosphere as it was falling. that's why the rain began to change to snow through most of the afternoon. and a big storms down in the south eastern texas today. heavy rain and flooding in houston. we're getting snow in parts of west texas. it looks like we'll get three to six inches of that out there. this is the next storm system that will be affecting us and not for tomorrow. tomorrow, it looks like it will be a very, very nice day. as we start getting into wednesday, wednesday afternoon, pretty good rain will be coming down out of this, okay? and so actually, just to the northwest of us, we can see basically drying conditions out here. that's tomorrow's weather for us. it looks pretty nice. >> moves out east. slick spots out o tonight. we're down to 31 in down. tomorrow lots of sunshine. could there be delays? there could be delays. the delay should be probably be
5:49 pm
around fairfax county. maybe even delays in prince william county. not a guarantee. i'm just saying basically, based on experience, when they get a little bit of snow out there, they occasionally have to have delay. keep in mind, this could be some slick spots. before the sun comes up tomorrow morning. 52 tomorrow. and more rain, getting colder towards the weekend. >> thanks, gary. >> thanks, gary. you could call the, the oscars of the auto industry. detroit's auto show came out. awards came out for the cars and trucks of the year. let's start with the winner of the car of the year. tell us which one won? >> the winner of the car of the year, it's interesting. you have a ford, folks wagon and you have the hyundai. it's called the hyundai elantra, come tact and fuel efficient. they say the styling was done
