That's it. I don't even live in the US and I have had it with the FCC talk about overcompensating the nipplegate.

short history:

nippelgate: the N-bomb has landed at the super bowl (won't some one please think of the children).
Station and affiliates get monster fines.
U2's bono is investigated for saying the f-word a year before nipplegate
Howard stern who does his show for 20 years gets investigated and is forced (ok not forced 20 mil is a nice transfer) to move to satellite radio sirus.
affiliates refuse to air the uncensored version of saving private ryan because of the F word in fear of new FCC fines.
*I know what you are thinking: What moron would protest against Saving private Ryan*
Here's the answer to the question of what kind of moron would complain to the FCC about "Saving Private Ryan" It's Robert Knight, of the curiously named Concerned Women for America
ABC apologizes for the Desperate Housewives "towel malfunction" during yesterday's Monday Night Football opening, calls it inappropriate. Heavy fines, high ratings certain to ensue
*I saw this all you see a a bare back (the humanity )*
FCC sets sights on cable, satellite radio and maybe even the internets

So I want to end with a quote from the movie network


Quote:

Howard: I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's worth. Banks are going bust. Shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's no one anywhere that seems to know what to do with us. Now into it. We know the air is unfit to breathe, our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TVs while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad. Worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don't go out anymore. We sit in a house as slowly the world we're living in is getting smaller and all we say is, "Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster, and TV, and my steel belted radials and I won't say anything." Well I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad. I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot. I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crying in the streets. All I know is first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a human being. God Dammit, my life has value." So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" I want you to get up right now. Get up. Go to your windows, open your windows, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Things have got to change my friends. You've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Then we'll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open your window, stick your head out and yell, "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!"




STOP FCC

is this the end of the first amendment?

I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'm NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANY MORE

Shoot, America has always been like this.
If it wasnít for Larry Flint, yes a slim ball, America would be even further bassAckwards and J.E. Hooverism would still be running the show like it used to.

But your view is well noted for sure.

I'm not sure how slim his balls were but he was definately a hero of free speech. Good movie too.
