I am certainly not interested in getting into any political discussions, but I have a little insight into a recent controversy.

Talk show host Stephen Colbert, who has really been making his bones by picking on the President, said something really off-color the other night. I thought it was funny because it was so unexpected, but yeah, did it belong on broadcast t.v.?

The fact is, the FCC has what it calls a "Safe Harbor" and what that means is that the agency doesn't take action on material deemed obscene between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.  Since Colbert's show airs at 10:30 or 11:30 depending on the time zone your in, he's perfectly in the clear.

You can not like him for his comments and you are welcome to not watch his show or even boycott his advertisers, but these Safe Harbor rules were established with a supreme court case, so it's highly unlikely you can do anything other than be mad about it.
