5896...Government Sanctioned F-Bomb Broadcast

Len Berman from Len Berman's That's Sports picks up the story:

David Ortiz of the Red Sox addressed the crowd before Saturday's game in Boston. He went uncensored proclaiming loudly "This is our F***ing City and nobody going to dictate our freedom." OK, it wasn't quite "Give me liberty or give me death," but he made his point and the FCC was OK with it. FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski tweeted, "David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today's Red Sox game. I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston - Julius." Was that the first government official sanction of an f-bomb?

Big Papi could run for mayor on that speech alone.
