Great moments in oral argument

In the oral argument regarding FCC penalties for indecent TV broadcasts, Chief Justice Roberts slipped up by saying what he was thinking:
Roberts jumps in to add, “People who want to expose their children to broadcasts where these words are used, there are 800 channels where they can go for that. All we are asking for ...” he stops himself. ”What the government is asking for, is a few channels where you can say they are not going to hear the S-word, the F-word. They are not going to see nudity.”
