U2 frontman Bono has received the backing of artists and media giants,
after he was reprimanded by America's decency watchdogs the FEDERAL
COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSIONS (FCC) for swearing on TV.
Media multi-national VIACOM and the Screen Actors Guild are among those
uniting behind the WITH OR WITHOUT YOU singer, who caused a storm of protest
when he used the 'f**k' word during last year's (03) live Golden Globe Awards
The FCC - keen to clamp down on televisual controversy following Janet
JACKSON's breast-baring escapade at the Super Bowl (FEB04) - subsequently
issued Bono with a strong warning that his bad language won't be tolerated in
But the protesters have slammed the FCC ruling as "chilling free speech
across the broadcast landscape".
