Heard That Word Lately? Damn Right

Fox Attacks, the group made up of Brave New Films, MoveOn, Media Matters and other progressive orgs, released its own response to Fox’s censoring Sally Field’s Emmy acceptance speech: A compilation of clips where the word "goddam" was used on Fox News Channel. It’s a challenge to Fox’s contention that they had to cut the use of the word for fear of indecency fines — not because her speech was anti-war.

Technically the FCC’s indecency authority doesn’t extend to cable, a.k.a. Fox News, although such networks often follow broadcast standards.
