It's OK to say the F word on TV

Apparently Bono of U2 fame used the F word several times during the Golden Globe Awards. This caused a bunch of complaints, and led the the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) investergating the whole thing. The Inquirer currently runs a story regarding this earth-shattering development. There is also a really, really interresting FCC report (PDF) on the whole thing.

Joking aside, it's nice that the US government still is censoring less than MTV, who wouldn't run a Darude video due to people being shown for too long under water... Kids might try it and die, you know!
