Censorship Satire   Leave a comment

Saturday Night Live is my favorite part of the week and, much to my excitement, they did a sketch with Gwyneth Paltrow and Cee-Lo Green making fun of the FCC’s ruling about Cee-Lo’s song “F**k You”. Here is the link to the satire, relevant to my controversy about censorship (the video is towards the bottom).

There is another really great radio program and stand-up routine from the 1970s by George Carlin called “7 Dirty Words”, in which Carlin questions who has the right to determine which words are obscene and which aren’t. This is relevant to my controversy as well. Funnily enough, one of the links gave me a notification that read “Removed due to inappropriate content”.
