The F Word..... Den "F" Ord

Everything we read online is true, right?
Alle som vi læser på Internet er sandheden, ikke?

Ok, American friends and family, I need you to verify this story for me! Mads found it Wednesday and although it makes me proud to read that freedom of speech is taking a step forward in my homeland, I still have this twinge of doubt that this article in the Danish newspaper was for real.... So I need you guys, living in the USA now, to tell me if it is REALLY TRUE!

Ok, amerikanske venner--- Jeg har brug for at man bekræfter denne historie! Mads fandt det i onsdags og selv om jeg er stolt af mit hjemland for at læse at ytringsfrihed går foran i USA, er jeg lidt tvivlsom at den er sandheden! Så hvis man bor i USA nu, vil jeg gerne høre hvis det er ægte!

http://epn.dk/medier/article2126330.ece Yes, article is in Danish, but here is the skinny...You will no longer be punished for swearing on American TV...including the F Word and the SH word (see, trying to maintain an element of lady-likeness by not typing the whole word until I am SURE the ruling is for real!)

http://epn.dk/medier/article2126330.ece Ja, artiklen er på dansk men referat er: Du bliver ikke længere straffet for at bande på amerikansk fjernsyn.....inklusiv "F ord" og "SH ord" (jeg prøver at være en "kvinde" og skriver ikke det hele ord til jeg er sikker på at artiklen er for ægte!!)

I heard this briefly on TV last night, but don't have all the details. I think we have lost our minds!!! We have enough trash talking on TV with the F word.

The Danish article you mentioned links to an article at the American site Dispatch Politics as the source:
