Fox Attacked for not Allowing Bad Language

We read:

"At last weekend's Emmy Awards, Fox broke away from dramatic-actress winner Sally Field as she made an antiwar statement punctuated with "goddamn"-which started the blogosphere humming with outrage. For many in the liberal camp, the incident confirmed their suspicions about Fox, owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.

"It's time for Fox to hear it for their blatant Bush cronyism," wrote a poster on Daily Kos, one of many similar comments, the LA Times reports.

"Some language during the live broadcast may have been considered inappropriate by some viewers," the network said in a statement. "As a result, Fox's broadcast standards executives determined it appropriate to drop sound (and picture) during those portions of the show."


A case of damned if you do and damned if you don't, I think. Since Fox is the only major channel that consistently gives both Leftist and conservative viewpoints an airing, nothing they do will ever be right for the Left. The Left NEED censorship of opposing views and Fox has upset that applecart.
