"Oh f*%k" as heard on the evening news!

Earlier today I was reading a post on a blog called Oh Hey!, and it really made me take a step back and think about some things. I'm not someone who gets offended very easily; I tend to think of myself as pretty liberal, and hold the philosophy of "if you don't want to see it then look the other way."

The instance that instigated this was a recent "mishap," we'll say, of a news reporter while broadcasting live on the air. Apparently something irritated the female anchor and she was caught saying "f*%k" (not on camera though). Personally, I thought it was very humorous, mostly because television news personalities are typically so well-put-together and proper. So this action just showed her having a human moment. I can imagine, though, that for some more...refined individuals, and parents, this might've caused a little anger. After all, we Americans do pretend like we're much more open-minded than we really are, and we usually make bigger deals of things than are really necessary. At least that's my opinion. Judge for yourself:

See "Miley's continued controversy..." for similar topic.

Thanks for the link...I'm dying to know what set her off, too.
