Fails to Bleep F-Word During Golden Globes
Today the Parents Television Council, a
non-profit, non-partisan entertainment watchdog group based in Los
Angeles, denounced NBC for failing to mute the "F-word" from last
night's broadcast of the Golden Globe Awards. Bono, the lead singer of
U2 said the word while accepting a Golden Globe for Best Original Song: "The
Hands That Built America" from Gangs of New
York. Networks routinely broadcast live
shows through a delay system that allows for the removal of inappropriate
broadcast of the Golden Globe Awards turned out to be another sad
addition to a long list of examples of network irresponsibility that
sacrifices family viewing for raunchy programming," said Brent Bozell,
President of the Parents Television Council. "One can only assume that
NBC intended to broadcast a live, uncut awards show to give the program
an edge but they clearly crossed the line while trying to score higher
ratings," Bozell added.
In what appears to be a disturbing trend,
the recent American Music Awards were also filled with vulgar language
and behavior. Patricia Heaton, co-star of Everybody Loves Raymond,
walked out of the ceremonies in protest of the crude content.
"Patricia Heaton made the right call when
she walked out on the AMA. We are witnessing an alarming trend in live
programming. There is no reason for an awards show that is broadcast on
network television at 8:00 pm to contain references to women's breasts,
three-way sex and highly inappropriate language," continued Bozell.
The Parents Television Council was founded in 1995 to
ensure that children are not constantly assaulted by sex, violence
and profanity on television and in other media. This national
grassroots organization has over one million members across the
United States, and works with television producers, broadcasters,
networks and sponsors in an effort to stem the flow of harmful and
negative messages targeted to children. The PTC also works with
elected and appointed government officials to enforce broadcast
decency standards. Most importantly, the PTC produces critical
research and publications documenting the dramatic increase in sex,
violence and profanity in entertainment. This information is
provided free of charge so parents can make informed viewing choices
for their own families.
