SerraGeorge Posted June 9, 2006 Share Posted June 9, 2006 This morning, I woke up and headed out to grab a coffee and a paper. At the coffee shop, I was assulted with front page images of the dead body of Abu Musab al Zarqawi. Actual photos of his dead and bloodied body taken to prove that we got him. They were all over the news last night too. Maybe you saw them. This in the wake of a June 7th bill that was passed overwhelmingly to increase the maximum FCC fine for broadcast indecency. It is "decent" to show images of a mangled corpse. Janet Jackson's boob... that is, a regular part of a regular (living, no less) person's body flashing for a moment on television is "indecent." Huh? Why is it better for our children (Oh won't someone think about the children!) to be shown photos of a person violently killed in war, than for them to see a "wardrobe malfunction?" What is the message? What are we teaching them? Am I just crazy here? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
