FW: CBS To Air Profanity-Laden Program

Dear Channel 3 news desk;


Please respond to this email which came into me; either on your news show or via email reply


I hope that as a local affiliate that you’ll bleep out what needs to be bleeped & if any bodies are shown cover them so that this is more acceptable

I realize that this footage was taken live at the time & is pure raw emotion but this is 5 yrs later & the excess profanity is unneeded to get the point across

Thank you

Theresa Tillett

CBS To Air Profanity-Laden Program

The Washington Briefing - 2006 Values Voter Summit - September 22-24, 2006Network testing waters to see how far they can go

Dear tillett-family,

Not content with all the profanity already on TV, CBS has decided to air the profanity-laden unedited version of "9/11" on Sept. 10. The decision by CBS is a slap in the face to the FCC and Congress, which recently raised indecency fines to $325,000 per incident.

"9/11," which will be shown in prime-time, contains a tremendous amount of hardcore profanity. CBS has stated they have not, and will not, make any cuts in the amount and degree of profanity. In addition, the network is suing the FCC over the indecency law, saying they should be able to show whatever they desire whenever they desire. CBS wants no limits.

This is a test case for CBS to see how far they can go. If there is no out-pouring of complaints from the public, they will go further the next time.

American Family Filter - Protect your children from trash on the Internet.The profanity is so bad that CBS has warned their affiliates that they could be subject to huge fines. The FCC says it will fine not only the networks, but also affiliates if the law is violated. Under the new Broadcast Decency Act the $325,000 per incident could run into millions of dollars not only for the network but also for local affiliates.

CBS could very easily bleep out the profanity, but they refuse. The network wants no restraints on their programming. If they are allowed to get away with this, they will simply air even more profanity in the future.

Take Action

It is time to tell CBS and the other networks that enough is enough!

Send an email, asking the FCC to enforce the law. Your email will go not only to the FCC, but also to CBS.

Contact your local CBS affiliate and ask them not to air "9/11." Click Here to find their contact information or use your local phone directory.

Please forward this to your friends and family. Share this information with members of your Sunday School class and church, and urge them to get involved.

If no changes are made and your CBS affiliate carries the program, AFA will provide you with information for filing a formal complaint with the FCC.
