Open Mouth. Change Feet.

When Janet Jackson exposed her breast during a Super Bowl many many moons ago... the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) put out something along the lines of a half-million dollars worth of fines.
When Howard Stern did what Howard does best... the fines that were stacked up against him were astronomical.

Currently, the FCC is discussing mandatory fines for any use of profane language... even if it is out of the control of the host of the program. So, an audience member can shout out a profanity on your show and you get fined.

Bummer...

I wonder how much MSNBC will be fined for Joe Scarborough’s slip of the lip. If you haven’t heard it... it is in the video clip below. But, be careful... it is not for young children, the elderly, or those on psychotropic medications...
