Fox censors…Sally Field?
Guys, if your imperial war dream stiffies get threatened by the Flying Nun, you’re a bit light in package department:
At tonight’s Emmy Awards show, the audience cheered Sally Field’s acceptance speech, which recognized the mothers of U.S. troops. “Surely this [award] belongs to all the mothers of the world,” she stated. “May they be seen, may their work be valued and raised. Especially to the mothers who stand with an open heart and wait. Wait for their children to come home from danger, from harm’s way, and from war. I am proud to be one of those women.”
Field then continued, “If mothers ruled the world, there would be no -“ But the Fox Emmycast cut off her sound and pointed the camera away from the stage, silencing the rest of her sentence: “god-damned wars in the first place.” </em>
To quote Joe Strummer:
You have the right to free
Speech as long as you’re not
Dumb enough to actually try it.</em>
