Who hasn't had a slip of the tongue and dropped the f bomb at an inopportune time? They should have just had him apologize on air, promise to do his best to not let it happen again, then move on as usual instead of firing him. If anyone had a problem with that scenario and called in afterwards, then is an appropriate time to use the f bomb, as in telling said caller to take their self righteous indignation and go fark themselves.

Furthermore comma, we as a society need to move past single mistake career ending things, like saying "fark" once on television. Swearing is something near everyone does, and should only be a problem if used intentionally in a professional setting, and even then, very sparingly used profanity at something incredibly unexpected is going to be very hard for anyone to watch out for. It's just how people work. Now, excessive and uncalled for profanity should probably be frowned upon, but an expletive at most once a blue moon should come with little penalty. People aren't perfect. Stop acting like they should be.

Mugato: I'll stand up for my country for a lot of things. We no longer have a monarchy (sort of), we have freedom of speech (sort of), we have the right against illegal...ok, enough about us. What I can't defend is our puritanical stance on boobies and cursing. Of all the shiat we allow on TV, soft core nudity and and PG-13 rated language are illegal? WTF?

On the other hand, I have no love for news bunnies and talking heads, and really don't feel any sympathy for these dim-bulb anchors when they do something stupid that leads to their termination. As far as I'm concerned, that's just one down, several thousands to go.

Our news is not news anymore, and a local celebrity being fired doesn't make me weep.

They've wanted to fire the guy forever and finally have a reason to. The end.

 I'll never understand our obsession with foul language, particularly as so much of our media is littered with seemingly unchecked violence. Did some kid who had never heard the f-word suddenly veer down a path of crime and despair after hearing it uttered on a newscast, probably after he should have been in bed? No?

 Then who farking cares?

 Meanwhile, we're all treated to images of bodies in various states of decomp during afternoon reruns of NCIS. Of course, the genitalia is blurred by lighting tricks. Can't have junior seeing a titty.
