FCC To Ignore Red Sox Ortiz's F-Bomb: 'He Spoke From the Heart'

The FCC is not going to fine the unexpected F-bomb by Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz that made it on to the airwaves.

The remark came after Ortiz thanked Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, Mass. Gov. Deval Patrick and the city's police department.

"This is our f---ing city!," he said emphatically. "And nobody's going to dictate our freedom. Stay strong."

The speech was not only broadcast uncensored on a pair of local radio stations but on NESN and nationally on MLBN.

But the FCC Chairman himself, Julius Genachowski, says the broadcasters have nothing to worry about.

"David Ortiz spoke from the heart at today's Red Sox game," he says on the Federal Communications Commission's official Twitter account. "I stand with Big Papi and the people of Boston."

The remark came as the Red Sox played their first home game since the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured.
