A Lot Of Words May No Longer Be Censored In The US

Reading through some legal mumbo-jumbo, it appears that the FCC has determined that censoring out many words is not within its jurisdiction. They state that they choose to censor words involving explicit content such as sexual functions and organs, but some words involving those are not always used in that context (ie: the F-bomb).

Not too sure what it all really means, but thats the idea I get from it. Check out the last paragraph of #5 on page 3 especially.

Pretty interesting stuff...wonder how this will affect radio/tv.

There are only 8 or so words that you can't say on tv. Then there are certain "situations" that you can't act or allude too.

Oh no, what will they do in Iceland now?

At least some years back in time the Icelandic TV didn't bother to remove the beeps when showing an American film. They just added Icelandic text at the bottom of the screen - quite useless since practically all Icelandics understand English pretty well.

The rusult was that the word "beep" became the worst four letter word in the Icelandic language.

If you Americans remove those beeps, then you change the Icelandic language as well. Did you realize that?

For us, non-native English speakers please transcript the 8 infamous words and those "situations" that turn several Americans pale and say "watch your mouth young man!" and are forbidden on TV. I can only think on Bit*h, F*ck, A$$... ?

I was watching "Mad about you" reruns and Jamie (Helen Hunt) said "it is fucked up" How does this thing work? Is it okay to say on TV f*ck off, f*ck you or any other given combination with the F word? Same with a$$hole. Which ones are the REAL bad words?

I can remember only 3 out of many that are banned in Mexican media...
"Puta"/"puto" (Whore if addressed to a woman. Prostitute and/or homosexual for a guy).
"Pendejo" (A$$hole).
"Chinga tu madre" (F*ck you, bite me, etc) and any combination or modification of the verb "Chingar" (to f*ck).

Smells like deletion... but please, don't. This is a truly genuine intercultural issue.  Innocent

Really now?!! interesting....!
I don't like that show, but, I'm quite fond of Helen Hunt. I guess I'll have to keep an eye out for that episode. What was it about, anyway?

They said shit over 150 times. Haha. They had that "shit" counter in the corner of the screen for the entire episode. Great stuff.

It long had been a rule of the MPAA ratings board that even a single mention of the "f word" in a movie automatically would require the issuance of a R rating (under 17 not admitted without parent or guardian). Certain movies will lose significant business if given R's, so the movie companies had to be careful about language.
A few years ago, the MPAA board relented a bit. A movie can now avoid an R rating if it uses the "f word" as an exclaimation, so long as the use is not excessive. Any use of the word in a sexual context, or together with mother, remains an automatic R rating.
