Sally Field Censored During Fox’s Emmys Broadcast

So watch the video below:

You probably noticed the bizarre cut that censored the last sentence of Sally Field’s moving tribute to the mothers of those in war. Here’s what she was trying to say: “If mothers ruled the world, there wouldn’t be any goddamned wars in the first place.”

You can argue she was censored because she used the word “goddamned” or you can argue she was censored because Fox isn’t too terribly keen on an anti-war political statement being made on its time. More fuel for the debate over whether Fox is evil how evil Fox is.
