Normally an expletive uttered on live television would trigger FCC scrutiny and potential fines. But in the wake of the Boston bombings and subsequent manhunt FCC chairman Julius Genachowski made a rare exception. Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz slipped an f-bomb into an speech broadcast live before Saturday’s home game against the Kansas City Royals. “This is our f—ing city, and nobody’s going to dictate our freedom”, he said. Genachowski later Tweeted from the verified FCC account: @FCC: David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today’s Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston – Julius.
