Since yesterday the above song can finally be played on U.S. Television. Prior to this “offensive” lyrics, cuss word and of course nudity was banned in the U.S. If you violated this it was going to get expensive. As an example the broadcast station who was publishing the live show with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake where she showed one of her tits was fined with $ 1.000.000. As well Howard Stern accumulated fines summing up to $ 2.5 Million for cussing live on air before he turned to broadcasting over satellite for which the FCC isn’t responsible. So yesterday the FCC lost a lawsuit concerning cussing and nudity on U.S. broadcasts (TV & Radio). The court stated that the censorship had a paralyzing effect on broadcasting and that freedom of speech is more important than the protection of minors. I’d say Freedom Of Speech: 1, Censorship: 0. What can be done creatively with the words above you can listen to here:
