If you saw the film in 2002 and weren’t offended, well you might be today, or more likely the FCC might.  While it seems highly unlikely that films on such important subject matter as terrorists attacks and world wars, will lead to FCC fines, some CBS affiliates believe they might.  Reuters reports that dozens of CBS affiliates are unwilling to rebroadcast 9/11 because of course language used by firefighters.  With possible fines increasing ten fold under new rules, content caution is happening.

I’m a mother, student, and a former director of a christian childcare academy. I feel it important to rebroadcast 9/11. Don’t fear the FCC.

I watched the uncensored documentary 9-11 on CBS lat night and it was compelling. I had seen clips of the footage before but to see it all put together with narrative from the people who were there was so powerful and really put the whole event in perspective for me. The fact that it contained strong language seemed as natural as the sun shining in the background to me, it was not necessary to cut it out and I’m glad that CBS took the brave stance to air the footage as is, it was real. Thank you, CBS.

I also watched the uncensored documentary 9-11 on CBS last night. I was completely riveted. For the first time I really GOT IT. I felt I was in New York– not just watching what happened there. For me the film was powerful. Thank goodness CBS made the right choice to show it uncensored. I think I did notice one or two “mute outs” presumably when someone used the Lord’s name in vain. That was fine with me, and I got the point anyway so nothing was lost for me by the muting. All Americans should watch this film in the uncensored version.
