We mentioned earlier that Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz used some colorful language during his pre-game speech this afternoon at Fenway Park. ESPN showed it on a delay and was able to bleep it out, but those watching on MLB Network and NESN heard it live and unedited. Oh, the horror.
While this sort of language is usually frowned upon on broadcast television and radio, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) made it a point this afternoon to say that they didn’t have an issue with it.
This might be my new favorite tweet ever. By the way, that statement was written by outgoing FCC chairman Julius Genachowski. He attended Harvard Law School.
