Radio and TV’s ruling commission the FCC has basically said the F-BOMB uttered by Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz wasn’t an issue. Ortiz was addressing the Fenway Park crowd this past Saturday in a pregame ceremony honoring the victims and law enforcement officials involved with the Boston Marathon bombing. His “our f-ing city” comment during the address was carried live by radio and TV. In my mind the comment was bad enough but what made it worst was FCC Chairman Genachowski tweeting afterwards that because the comment was “from the heart” it wasn’t an issue. Ortiz’s F-BOMB was a clear violation of the FCC’s indecency policy.
