Murica, land of freedom!

Americans really do believe that their Constitution gives them the greatest freedom of speech ever known.

While allowing broadcasters to be regulated by an FCC that, among other things, still maintains a list of seven words you can't say on TV or radio.

At one point the FCC even cracked down on broadcasters playing "radio edits" of hop-hop tracks because listeners might be able to identify the bleeped out words based on context.
