You did it! FCC fines CBS $3.6 million for 'Without A Trace'

Dear Bosun,

In January, 2005, we asked you to join us in filing formal complaints against CBS and their affiliate stations for broadcasting Without A Trace, complete with an extended teen-age orgy scene. Within days, 165,997 AFA on-line supporters had filed formal complaints with the FCC.

This week, the FCC announced it agrees with you and is fining 111 CBS stations $32,500 each for broadcasting this indecency. This major accomplishment happened because you took action!

This is the largest fine ever against the networks and their stations. In addition, the FCC reaffirmed a $550,000 fine against CBS for Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" at the 2004 Super Bowl. I want to thank you for taking time to get involved. This proves we can make a difference when we join together! The FCC will be bombarded with complaints by Hollywood, the media, and liberals such as the ACLU. They must get letters of thanks from those who appreciate their enforcement of the indecency laws! We must let them hear from us! Please take time to thank the FCC for their actions by sending them a letter of support.

Just as important, I need you to help us grow. Please forward this email and encourage your friends and family to be a part of this great work. Our children are worth the effort!

You people are a bunch of loosers. Is your life so pointless that you have to try and interfere with everyone else's. You know what you could do if you don't like what your watching on TV, besides writing letters and signing petitions, change the channel morron. I'm sure you're a holy roller, and doesn't it say in the bible "Judge Not." You're actually so arrogant as to believe you are justified in telling other people what they should watch. Isn't God supposed to be our Judge. So you consider yourself divine? Just a guess but isn't that sacrilige

Sounds like we may have struck a raw nerve by re-posting information from AFA. It was reported in newspapers and through the AFA. However it may have not been reported nation wide because of media bias.

We, The Bosun Locker, were not involved in the case. However, your opinion is graciously appreciated. It will be left for all to read.

By the way, we are not a "holy roller" organization, whatever that means. Just reporting information and sometimes expressing alternative points of view. You may consider emailing the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and AFA and tell them what you think.

That is the American way; freedom of speech and freedom to express ones views in an open forum.
