FCC: The Olympics May Be Hazardous To Your Moral Compass

The FCC has asked the NBC television network to turn over tape of the opening ceremonies of last summer’s Olympic Games, so that the agency can investigate viewer complaints about its content. No one seems to know exactly what portion of the Athens ceremony raised hackles with American viewers, but it may have something to do with the partially unclothed state of some of the traditional Olympic poses adopted by actors in the show. Or maybe it was the woman wading in a puddle who “appeared to have been impregnated by someone who was radioactive, but we cannot say with certainty whether that was Greek or just weird.”
