Dear Channel 3 news desk;

 

Please respond to this email which came into me; either on
your news show or via email reply

 

I hope that as a local affiliate that you’ll bleep out
what needs to be bleeped & if any bodies are shown cover them so that this
is more acceptable

I realize that this footage was taken live at the time &
is pure raw emotion but this is 5 yrs later & the excess profanity is
unneeded to get the point across

Thank you

Theresa Tillett

Hartford

CBS To Air Profanity-Laden Program

The Washington Briefing - 2006 Values Voter Summit - September 22-24, 2006Network
testing waters to see how far they can go

Dear
tillett-family,

Not content
with all the profanity already on TV, CBS has decided to air the
profanity-laden unedited version of "9/11" on Sept. 10.
The
decision by CBS is a slap in the face to the FCC and Congress, which recently
raised indecency fines to $325,000 per incident.

"9/11," which will be shown in prime-time, contains a tremendous
amount of hardcore profanity. CBS has
stated they have not, and will not, make any cuts in the amount and degree of
profanity.
In addition, the network is suing the FCC over the indecency
law, saying they should be able to show whatever they desire whenever they
desire. CBS wants no limits.

This is a test case for CBS to see how far they can go. If there is no
out-pouring of complaints from the public, they will go further the next
time.

American Family Filter - Protect your children from trash on the Internet.The
profanity is so bad that CBS has warned their affiliates that they could be
subject to huge fines. The FCC says it will fine not only the networks, but
also affiliates if the law is violated. Under the new Broadcast Decency Act
the $325,000 per incident could run into millions of dollars not only for the
network but also for local affiliates.

CBS could very easily bleep out the profanity, but they refuse. The network
wants no restraints on their programming. If they are allowed to get away
with this, they will simply air even more profanity in the future.

Take
Action

It is time to tell CBS and the other networks
that enough is enough!

Send an email, asking the FCC
to enforce the law. Your email will go not only to the FCC, but also to
CBS.

Contact your local CBS affiliate
and ask them not to air "9/11." Click
Here
to find their contact information or use your local phone
directory.

Please forward this to your friends and
family.
Share this information with members of your Sunday
School class and church, and urge them to get involved.

If no changes are made and your CBS affiliate carries the program, AFA will
provide you with information for filing a formal complaint with the FCC.

Sincerely,
