    I applaud NBC News for running, uncensored, Trump’s “shithole” quote during Peter Alexander’s piece at the top of the January 11th broadcast. But could the partisan FCC go after NBC affiliates for airing the segment if they wanted to? I hope not.

    It looks like some people already have http://variety.com/2018/tv/news/trump-shithole-fcc-complaints-1202662858/

    I guess time will tell. It a no-win situation here but on any other normal day they would have fined them but NBC and CNN have a good argument on why they did not censor it as The President of these United states use the word to describe other countries.

    CNN isn’t under the jurisdiction of the FCC.

    They (those people) were directly quoting the President.

    Nobody will be fined.

    Unless...
    The whole thing was just a lie and it's proven he never said shithole... Then would NBC be on the hook for the profanity???

    No.

    Nobody will be cited, no NAL's...no fines....no s**t.
