I Hate: The FCC

Fresh off my posts where I profess my hatred of the south and Duke...heres something else I hate...the FCC.

FCC fears force Fox to pixelate cartoon nudity

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Fox says it covered up the naked rear end of a cartoon character recently because of nervousness over what the Federal Communications Commission will find objectionable.

The latest example of TV network self-censorship because of FCC concerns came a few weeks ago during a rerun of a "Family Guy" cartoon. Fox electronically blurred a character's posterior, even though the image was seen five years ago when the episode originally aired.

"We have to be checking and second-guessing ourselves now," Fox entertainment president Gail Berman said Monday. "We have to protect our affiliates."

Granted - the FCC itself didn't do anything here, but their activities after the superbowl have created this paranoia.
