The AFA is apparently shameless. In the pursuit of money, they will even attack their bedmates.
Knowing full well that emotions might be running high after the recent death of a NASCAR driver (both the driver's death and the 'offending' conversation took place on Sunday....not sure of the exact timeline), the AFA is mounting an FCC attack on Fox over allowing the word "shit" to be aired. The word was uttered by a driver who had just been in a car crash.
In the same e-mail, AFA seeks donations to keep up this "worthy" effort.
Anybody who contributes to these insensitive louts needs to have their head examined. Here is the full text of the letter (sans the linkage). I have removed the e-mail address where I get their alerts for obvious reasons.
Here is the ridiculous AFA alert:

Fox allows 's' word. Take a stand for our children!
Dear xxxx (deleted),
Tired of all the profanity on TV? Want to do something about it? Here is your opportunity.
File a complaint with the FCC against Fox Network for using the "s" word.
This past Sunday afternoon, Fox network broadcast the NASCAR "Food City 500" race. During the course of the race, driver Martin Truex, Jr. crashed his car after being bumped by another driver.
Fox network aired a conversation between Truex and his crew chief, Kevin Manion. During the course of the conversation, Manion told his driver, "We missed the set-up today. It (the car) was a piece of s**t.
Fox had been warned about allowing the "s" word on the air. The network could have used a delay and bleeped the profanity. But they chose not to. The network chose to air the segment live. Millions of viewers, including children, were offended by the crude profanity.
Also, please forward this to your family and friends. Together, we can make a difference!
Here is your opportunity to make the networks more sensitive to your concern. The FCC is willing to fine the stations, but viewers must complain! Please file a complaint with the FCC against Fox stations for the broadcast of indecent language.
