Will Swearing Be Allowed On TV Soon???

| Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

swearing may soon be allowed on tv

We f***ing hope so! LOLz!

Today, broadcast networks are going in front of Supreme Court to argue that they shouldn't be scrutinized by the FCC.

Even though the Supreme Court ruled the FCC's ban on swearing to be "entirely rational" in 2009, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals is now saying that "the FCC policy was unconstitutionally vague."

AND given the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court does seem interested in expanding the First Amendment, it's quite possible that they might rule in favor of the networks.

Should be quite the f***in' day at Supreme Court! Ha!

We wish the networks luck with their cause!!!!!

    Funny that it is ok to watch people getting shot, stabbed, strangled, and beaten to death on prime time tv, but swearing is not allowed.

    Now maybe we can understand what some of those trashy reality shows are actually talking about because they beep so much out! LOL

    Why do you have to be so fucking trashy? how is that productive for our society, asshole? so now kids can't watch tv at all, ever? because it won't stop with shows, it will spill out to commercials just like all the other filth does. You're trash. I'm so sick of you dirtying the eorld with your shit.

    Re: rosebud99 – As people have become immuned to the violence you speak of, so will swearing become common-placed and socially accepted, I fear.

    While I think it is unconstitutional and takes away freedom of speech I also think only the lowliest scummiest people speak that way and I really don't want to see our society treat it as "ok". America is already disapointing enough in so many ways why lower it to mad max societal living. LAME

    Americans are so classy.

    Yes, they will go over the normal bounds and abuse cussing so that it will be like smurf language. oh let's go to the smurfing smurf smurf and smurf because it's so smurfy. replace with fuck.. oh to have a stupid dumb downed society

    In the UK, we even get to say c**t on tv… even in a non artistic context. Wahey! Also, f**k shows up soon after 9pm!

    Re: Natz1988 – So did you get used to it or does it bother you sometimes?

    Re: be strong – Doesn't bother me! To be honest, people in my generation throw around the c-word like no one's business. No one tends to be overly offended. But then, every country gets it's complainers. The UK tends to focus more on things like racism and discrimination censorship-wise. Swearing is pretty low on the list of offences :-)

    We f***ing hope so! LOLz! You are disgusting…

    I kind of like the beeping sound. Its really funny. "I don't give a Beep" haha

    As for myself I hope there are still guidelines that detail after what time this will be permitted, and on certain stations. There should be a way to protect the innocence of our children, they are growing up faster than generations before them. Children are who really matter, programing should cater to them, defer to them. If there is a chance that a child is watching they should bleep out the language. Now I am not saying that children shouod be watching ALL programming; I guess I am directing my comments to non-cable, daytime to evening before 9:00pm programming. We dont need to de-sensitize our children to using foul language, because its just a short step from allowing it in schools. Its bad enough when you are shopping and have chilkdren with you that people dont have common sense to think they should watch their langauge because of the little ones. Just my two cents

    Why can't they just limit the adult content to after 9pm? In the UK, we get nothing even remotely vulgar before 9pm, but after 9pm, we get nudity, cursing, violence, etc. If you want to protect your children, you simply make sure they're in bed by 9pm.



  15. 15

    Why do you think more corruption of children is great?

    You really need therapy.

    They already curse and have NUDITY on popular shows throughout other places in the world, I don't see why a show can't be REALISTIC and have cursing in it if it is on after a certain time. Non-basic cable channels do it somewhat, saying "shit" or the like on channels like FX, but in actuality they can say "fuck" as well, they just don't. I mean, you shouldn't be allowed to have cursing on in the middle of the day because there are too many children watching TV, but after a certain time it should be allowed. And to the people saying that they don't think we should be exposed to it at all, go back in time back to when the Puritans came here and live your life because the reality of it is that people curse all the time and it makes a show more realistic and watchable than when they're purposely not speaking like a normal person would in order to avoid foul language on TV. I cringe every time they say "crap" on Grey's Anatomy because you KNOW Alex Karev is really saying "shit"

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – Too right! and triple M, it will only corrupt children if they don't introduce a watershed or parents let them watch late night programmes. You wouldn't get f-ing and blinding first thing in the morning!

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – This is the way it needs to be handled. There shouldn't be any cursing before 9PM. I have to say, I don't have the cleanest of language myself, but I'm able to hold back what I say when it's uncalled for. Before 9PM is uncalled for.

    Where I live its after 10pm when you see the sex and swearing. It is great I guess if you like reality show filth, however it's not at all necessary to have swearing in a tv show to be good. If anything it kind of takes something away from it.
