Good use of tax dollars

I guess the FCC has nothing better to do that now they have to target the sports broadcasting industry. The FCC is now reviewing tapes of previously live broadcasts for foul language.

According to this MSNBC story, the FCC is reviewing tapes from broadcasters that “might include vulgar remarks from unruly spectators, coaches and athletes at live sporting events”

The new FCC rules mandate that material is indecent if it “in context, depicts or describes sexual or excretory activities or organs in a patently offensive manner as measured by contemporary community standards for the broadcast medium.” Program aired between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. are not subject to this rule.

Apparently nobody on the FCC has ever watched a soap opera, or prime time tv for that matter. You know all this could have been avoided if that twit Janet Jackson hadn't needed a little attention to get her career going again.

Just another government agency utilizing our hard-earned tax dollars under the guise of protecting us.

Oh joy.


  1. Okay, if they are reviewing *live* tapes, that means that whatever they are reviewing has already aired and potentially corrupted the minds of thousand of drunk guys eating cold pizza and scratching their beer bellies while watching sports. So, if they do find some "vulgar remarks" what are they going to do about it? Jump in a time machine and go back in time to slap duct tape over someone's mouth?

  2. I think it's funny. Here the FCC is falling all over themselves in this mess and I say the "F" word at least ten times a day.

    Guess I'm done for LOL!
