Indecency on Oprah

There is no way I could find better proof that censorship just doesn't work. The FCC fined Howard Stern's brodcasters for his discussion of explicit sexual terms. Oprah Winfrey allowed similar talk on her show, but she avoided charges because it was in a different manner. Indecency or not? It's too relative to be regulated.


Commenter Andy points out this story from Howard Stern's website. Oprah's dirty talk was too much for his show! Take a look at Stern's other articles. He may have a foul mouth, but he's got some good ideas.
