FCC:a not guts, no ethics

Showing his holster
You can't even write in a blog what Colbert said on the air about President Trump, but the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is letting him get away with it. That sucks.

And if I can say 'that sucks' and get away with it, you can imagine what Colbert actually said. If you don't know, you might be living in a box in North Korea.

The FCC said on Tuesday that it isn't going to take any action whatsoever against the foul-mouth scumcrumpet, Steven Colbert because they work for the government and they're here to help. 

They will not do anything against "Late Show with Stephen Colbert." They do not care that they received thousands of complaints from viewers who were appalled over Colbert's homophobic and generally disgusting reference to oral sex involving Trump and Putin. They are from the government and there is nothing you can do about it.

"Consistent with standard operating procedure, the FCC's Enforcement Bureau has reviewed the complaints and the material that was in the subject of these complaints,"  said a statement by Neil Grace, an FCC spokesman. "The Bureau has concluded that there was nothing actionable under the FCC's rules."

And they had to admit, they found the joke against Trump rather funny.

Colbert also criticized Trump for abruptly ending an interview with CBS News. "Face the Nation" hosted by John Dickerson.

"Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine," Colbert ignorantly said, thinking that skinheads would actually want to grow hair, or aren't able to grow hair. 

Then he went into a profanity dump and I'm not going to go there.

Suffice it to say, Colbert has the right to say whatever he wants, but not necessarily on national television. But the FCC  does not have the right to be impotent in doing the job we taxpayers expect them to do.
