When the FCC said it was looking into whether Stephen Colbert’s recent obscenity-laced anti-Trump diatribe masquerading as a monologue violated obscenity rules, the liberal media thundered that the Trump Administration was trying to censor its critics (boy, talk about a full time job!) But in fact, the FCC is required to look at any program if the agency receives public complaints of indecency about it. And they got a few complaints about Colbert. Actually, over 5700.

It’s unlikely that they will take action. But for future reference, if Colbert wants to avoid the FCC having to investigate his program for indecency, all he has to do is hire some writers who are capable of writing actual comedy rather than foul-mouthed leftist rants. Then again, if he did that, he’d probably drop back to third in the ratings.
