F-bombs away!!

A Federal Court in New York overturns the FCC ban of using the F word on network TV. While I'm no prude, this country is really losing it. There is a place for everything, but the F-Bomb on our public airways is not one of them.

Post Tech - Court strikes down FCC indecency rules on fleeting f-bombs

Okay... so if I'm reading all of the posts right, people have no problem using the F-Bomb on public airwaves? I'm not talking cable.

after 9:00 pm I don't have an issue, but children don't need to hear that word every 5 min on daytime TV or it will become just another overused word with little meaning.
I don't have kids but if I did they would not be allowed to speak as I do, I'm pretty fluent in expletives, dad was a sailor & spoke like one too.

Well, I was kidding around but I don't see anything wong with an occasional f-word on Leno or Letterman (late nite regular tv). During daytime or primetime it shouldn't be allowed in my opinion.

Cable is different.

Yeah, no problem with cable... you have to subscribe to it so you know what your getting is not the same standard the FCC applies to public airways.

Restrict to Leno and other late night programing?? The NY court removed all restrictions, how then can you limit it's use on day or prime time?

What I was meaning to say was that is how I felt it should be. (my opinion) I was not very clear in my statement.

As much as i love my fucking f-bomb (see what i did there? ) I'm not a fan of this. While I'm young enough to not have kids, I don't like the idea of giving small children the idea that it's okay to swear. However, I do like the idea of letting shows use it sparingly, for the shock factor it's meant to have.
