Pearl Jam Webcast Censored

Recommended Posts

During the performance of "Daughter" the following lyrics were sung to the tune of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" but were cut from the webcast:


- "George Bush, leave this world alone." (the second time it was sung); and


- "George Bush find yourself another home."


This was censored by AT&T Webcasts, and now are facing legal action, due to violations of the 1st Amendment.


Any thoughts

That's hilarious... you really wonder who is running AT&T, who owns it. Probably the same people who own FOX (who in my opinion,  should be strung up Texas-style).

no, fox does not own at&t. at&t is owned by the southwestern bell corporation, a telecommunications conglomerate. just google it, rather than guessing.


if you support free speech, then "stringing" them up "texas-style" is not a good way to go about it. the great thing, and sometimes aggravating thing about free speech is that everyone, even the zealots, are entitled to having a voice.
