    MSNBC Oopsie (FCC Penalty Inbound!)

    Listening to MSNBC this morning, they were streaming the Zimmerman Trial opening statements......and rigth off the bat the Prosecution performing the opening statement quotes Zimmerman and says both "F*cking" and "A**holes", repeatedly, within the first minute of coverage.

    A few second more go by when MSNBC cuts in and apologizes, says they're going to switch to a 7 secodn delay, and goes back into coverage.

    How they'd not have it on 7 secodn delay by default, I have no idea.

    I also wonder how many other Networks in their rush to cover the openign statements also got caught up by this insta-profanity by the prosecution this morning.

    Be a busy morning of fine paperwork for the FCC I'm going to guess.

    Without getting into the case...briliant opening statement by prosecutor...pretty lame "joke" by defense.

    That was my take as well.

    Prosecution painted (rather well) Zimmerman as the Punisher.

    Defense laid a poopbomb joke that fell flat as flaty flat.

    Prosecution 1 vs. Zimmerman 0
