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?
