David Ortiz Drops F-Bomb On Live TV, FCC Chairman “Stands With Big Papi” and His Fleeting Expletive

April 20th, 2013

This is a new one for FCC enforcement. Today, during a pregame ceremony before the Red Sox game, David Ortiz said, among other things, “this is our fucking city” on live tv. My first thought was, fuck, another fleeting¬†expletive.

But, in what must be a new one for FCC enforcement,¬†Julius Genachowski, the chairman of the FCC tweeted, “David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today’s Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston – Julius.”

Is this the equivalent of a non-enforcement letter from the FCC? What if someone files a complaint against Papi?
