9/25/07: Ken Burns' "The War"

9/24/07: Sanitizing "The War"

From Ken Burns' The War

Salt Lake City, UT – Responding to PBS stations' worries about language content in his new documentary "The War," Ken Burns created a version that expunged the twice used "f-word" and the few "s-words." KUED is running the edited version during prime-time, and the full version during the "safe harbor" after 11 p.m. Monday, Doug is joined by author Jeremy Lipschultz and others for a look at the FCC, its vague rules about indecency, and the careful balance between defining obscenity and protecting the First Amendment.
