Curse Words on TV

It's been a big week for curse words on TV, as Donald Trump made news outlets debate whether or not to say "shithole" on the air. The FCC actually received complaints over use of the word on NBC and CNN (which the FCC has no jurisdiction over as far as content). Cable news also chatted about Trump's racism, and late-night hosts went to town on his remarks. Margaret Sullivan discusses the media reaction.

Meanwhile, on Saturday Night Live, Sam Rockwell said the F-word, and Brian Steinberg has analysis of recent instances of profanity on SNL and whether they're worth concern.
