Pro-Family Group Prepared to Protest SPR on ABC

by MarkatNite / November 15, 2004 11:23 AM PST

And if the network chooses not to be responsible about upholding broadcast indecency standards, Sharp says OMM/OMD will insist that the FCC hold them accountable as violators. He notes that thousands of and members, over 90 percent of those polled, are ready and willing to file a formal FCC indecency complaint against their local ABC stations if they decide to broadcast the movie in the unedited form, with its dozens of "f" words and "s" uncut from the planned Thursday night airing of Ryan.

File an indecency complaint against ABC for 'f' word and 's' word

I hate to say, "I told you so", but... - Mark

If they had watched the movie
by Dan McC / November 15, 2004 10:41 PM PST

they might have gotten a better appreciation for the whole 'freedom' thing.

Maybe they can rent it sometime.

And they're objecting to **** and ****, not the huge amounts of gore, dismemberment, blood, and carnage.

The phrase ''missing the point'' comes to mind....
by Josh K / November 16, 2004 12:12 AM PST

....doesn't it.

Everybody knows that when a soldier is maimed by an exploding grenade, he just grabs the (bloodless) wound, shouts "Rats, I've been hit!" and always lives long enough to ask his buddy to please let his girl know he loves her.

That's how it was in those old war movies, and that's precisely what was wrong with most of them.

I'm all for decency but I'm also for parents raising their own kids. Monitor your childrens viewing on TV and the net. And when someting offends me I shut it off. There is just too many people trying to take over my everyday actions and I don't like it. And if you watched it and were not expecting what you saw, you only have youself to blame. The network did warn you. (before & during the showing)

Yup, the warning is key, IMO.
by MarkatNite / November 16, 2004 9:25 AM PST

And the inclusion of a warning makes this incident completely different from the Superbowl half-time show.

Not to mention the context - Mark

They asked for a waver, I understand
by Dragon / November 16, 2004 10:29 AM PST

But the FCC said they didnt give wavers, they just responded to complaints. Guess the squeeky wheels get the grease. Maybe the trick is for the rest of us to be squeakier.
