The FCC gets its collective panties in a bunch whenever someone talks like a human being on television. So they must have have had a huge wedgie after Detroit TV anchors threw to Lauren Podell when she wasn’t ready and she accidentally said the “F-dash-dash-dash” word. Oops.
The anchors gave the obligatory deer in headlights look, acting as though they’d never heard the word before in their cloistered lives. They then apologized to viewers for subjecting them to real-world language and continued with their boring newscast.
