Fonda Says C- Word On US Television


“Jane Fonda inadvertently said a word that you don’t say on television. It was a slip and obviously she apologises and so do we,” Vieira said. “We would do nothing to offend the audience, so please accept that apology.”

US broadcast standards and practices bar the use of the C-word and NBC, which is owned by General Electric, was quick to disassociate itself from Fonda’s use of it, despite an appeals court ruling tossing out an indecency finding for “fleeting obscenities”.

In later editions of the show broadcast in other US time zones, NBC silenced the word and covered the video with a still photo when Fonda uttered it.
