Fox Plowed Sally Field
"And let's face it, if mothers ruled the world there would be no g-ddamn wars in the first place." Sally Field
Fox TV should be ashamed of what they did to Sally Field--and all Americans--Emmy night. But they're probably still congratulating themselves on striking another blow for the self-appointed freedom censors of the Conservative Right.
The first buzz was that Fields got the hook for using the F-word. Which, really, late at night on a show few were even watching on a network that regularly uses the N-word and other vulgarities is hardly the crime of the century.
And guess what? Turns out she only took the Lord's name in vain. Like nobody at Fox ever says g-ddamn. Puhlease. That wasn't it.
In Fox's world, Field's crime was taking the War in Iraq's name in vain. The Right Wing political agenda's name in vain. The policies of the Bush administration's name in vain.
Fox sent the final words of her acceptance speech into a Soprano-like black void not because of her language. Let's be very clear: it was her politics Fox bleeped.
Liberal, anti-war, Democrat, anti-Bush are the real dirty words to the Right Wingnuts at Fox. But if any of them listened, they would have heard Sally Field patriotically dedicate her award to all mothers of all soldiers serving our country.
All those Fox conservative creeps who conspired to bring censorship to the Emmy's should have their mouths washed out with soap for taking the name of Freedom in vain.
