On a college radio list-serve, one volunteer pointed out that President Bush can say “shit” on CNN – without being bleeped and the rest of college radio is screwed by the FCC if any DJ played a song with the word “hell” in it.
“Recently, President Bush signed a Bill that increased indecency fines from the maximum of $32,500 up to $325,000 PER INCIDENT.”
(from last month’s e-mail update to volunteers).
I don’t know if the word “hypocrite” or “irony” would work for this case. What do you think?
I think it fucking sucks. But if you missed that delightful episode – Jon Stewart has a nice way of summing it up.
