PFT on NBCSN invades “unnecessary censorship”

Yes, we’ve got a clear and obvious NBC bias.  Sometimes, however, at the risk of angering the Lords of Kabletown, we mention programming from another network.

ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live is very funny, and often hilarious.  Sure, it’s now up against The Tonight Show on NBC and The Late Show with David Letterman, who I’ve been watching since the days of religiously not starting on the nightly college homework until his NBC post-Tonight Show show ended at 1:30 a.m. ET.

But that’s why God made Al Gore.  Today, the audience can now take in all three, if the audience so chooses.  Or the audience can consume snippets posted on YouTube.

The best weekly segment from Kimmel’s show takes innocuous comments from other TV programming and bleeps out certain words to make it into something very dirty.  Sometimes, it’s absolutely filthy.

Last night, a line from Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network appeared in the segment.  You can watch it below.

To be clear, Erik Kuselias actually said that Tim Tebow was given permission to “seek his own trade.”  Unless I’m just not remembering it correctly.

    Really? Did you not get the joke about Al Gore inventing the internet? Gotta love extremism, on both sides of the fence. Some of the funniest stuff around.

  3. When I saw “unnecessary censorship” I thought maybe the article would be an apology for this site’s strange habit of censoring comments that are in no way offensive or vulgar.

    Sigh. A man can dream.

  4. Oh holy crap, I laughed my coffee out my nose… goddamn Kimmel! That was awesome!

  5. Of course everyone “gets” the Al Gore inventing the internet “joke” but he did claim it as his along with a lot of other things and is now spewing BS about “global warming” that some nuts are eating up. How many more of his little jokes should be tolerated?

  6. Absolutely hilarious segment! ….. Unnecessary Censorship is also a practice of PFT,…but that isn’t very funny. Raggle fraggle!

  7. I believe the word is misremembered according to a certain Baseball player who would never lie.

  8. myopinionisrighterthanyours – yes – I got it. Al Gore is the extremist – quit judging others by your own faults…

    Wait…people are still trying to fight the “Global warming isn’t real” battle? Wow.

    Give me one bit of evidence that anthroprogenic global warming is real. “My third grade teacher told me” doesn’t count.

    Okay, for one thing, Al Gore was being dead butt serious at the time, which makes it funny. But I doubt you get the joke since the joke is use the transitive property on God made Al Gore and Al Gore invented the internet.

    Actually, I was referring to you. But yes, it applies to Al Gore as well. And being in the middle, I doubt have the “fault” of extremism. Thanks.

    Considering this is a football message board, I’ll give you a simple answer (yes this is from wikipedia, check the sources from wikipedia if you want)

    “In the scientific literature, there is a strong consensus that global surface temperatures have increased in recent decades and that the trend is caused mainly by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases. No scientific body of national or international standing disagrees with this view,[170][171]”

    If you want some other evidence… look around. Haven’t you noticed some weird weather. A bunch of the midwest just got snow in May. Tons of stronger than usual hurricanes, etc. I mean,

    Then ask yourself, who has something to gain by lying? Thousands of independent scientists working for all sorts of different companies? Or the multi-billion dollar oil companies who stand to lose billions and billions in profits if people find out they are destroying the earth

    Actually, they both do, although I would classify one camp (myth) as flat out lying and the other (fact) as exaggerating. Again, as with most other sensitive issues, I believe the true answer lies somewhere in the middle.
