I Got An Urgent E-Mail From The Fuckers At Parents' Television Council

Here's a fuckin' excerpt:

It used to be that you could sit down and watch an evening football game with your children without fear of them being exposed to inappropriate material. Sadly, that's no longer the case as was proven Saturday night during the Fox broadcast of the NFL playoff game between the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles.
FuckDaEagles
During a cutaway shot to the stadium spectators, the camera focused directly on a woman wearing a t-shirt clearly inscribed with the words "F--k Da Eagles" (without the dashes). The shot stayed focused on the woman and her shirt for several seconds. There can be no doubt that this was an intentional airing of patently offensive language on the public airwaves, as the person wearing the profane t-shirt was culled by Fox Network's broadcast crew from more than 70,000 spectators in the stadium. The camera operator selected that particular woman and the director and/or producers of the event made an affirmative and conscious decision to air the shot from that particular camera, forcing the f-word into millions of homes. Furthermore, the v-chip would not and could not have protected children and families from the type of content evidenced here.
Fuckin' "FCC Complain Form"--and the fuckin' photo--here.

Finally, someone is pressuring the evil Fox Sports to clean up their act!

Though, technically, the Eagles *were* soundly and thoroughly fucked...

Hey, if there are any experts on offending out there, Faux (especially Faux News) is at the head of the list!
Can't wait to see Bull O'Lielly on Steven Colbert Thursday, that should be a hoot!

It appears that the document can be edited. Was thinking that the next time I see something I find indecent on Fox and Friends, I'll use the template.

As a teacher, I'm way more offended by the use of the word "da" than the use of the word "fuck". At least the kids who saw that shirt will be able to spell "fuck".
