The latest example of TV network self-censorship because of FCC concerns came a few weeks ago during a rerun of a “Family Guy” cartoon. Fox electronically blurred a character’s posterior, even though the image was seen five years ago when the episode originally aired.
“We have to be checking and second-guessing ourselves now,” Fox entertainment president Gail Berman said Monday. “We have to protect our affiliates.”
Everything should just go to cable. Or, better yet, programming on demand. People could just order whatever shows they feel like watching, whenever they want them.
