Report: CBS' Big Brother Airs Profanity During Prime Time

From CitizenLink:

The Parents Television Council (PTC) criticized CBS for allowing profanity onto this week's Big Brother 10, which airs during prime time. “There is absolutely no justification for allowing an ‘F-word’ like this to air unedited on prime-time broadcast television," PTC President Tim Winter said in a news release. "There can be no question that this was an intentional act on the part of the network; someone actually had to edit the scene with the word into the show."

Last year, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that television networks essentially can air profanity at any time of day. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case in November. "Last week, CBS said they wanted indecency laws overturned, and today we found out why," Winters said. "Based on their behavior, it would appear they feel the law no longer applies to them, anyway."

Your thoughts???
