Latest blatant obnoxious incident. While watching "Red Eye" of Fox ( I also watch CNN), Jo remarks to Ted Cruz's comment about "New York Values" saying that the remark was a F----- S---- thing to say. And I was about to give Fox credit for actually muting out her obscenities. I think it is only fair given the criticism I have made in the past.
But about 8 minutes later one of the male members lets out an obscenity and there is the loudest freaking bleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep I perhaps have ever heard. My ears are still ringing. I mean, you mute the first string of obscenities and then let loose with as freaking loud and high-pitched bleep as you can give a few minutes later. It is beyond ridiculous. You literally cannot watch (almost) anything on television today without an obscenity.
The bleeping is no longer creeping; it has arrived in full force, and only increasing. Even Trump is being bleeping, not to mention Obama and Joe Biden.
Please, either have enough dignity not to utter obscenities. If you must, then please mute them. If you cannot do that, then please have a less high-pitched grating sound.
Do any broadcast engineers read this forum? I would appreciate a reply. If you would like an alternative sound, I would be more than happy to supply you with one. Thank you.
(Note to moderators: Not sure what is happening, but when I typed my messages they look fine, but upon saving the resulting text ends up garbled, eliminating spaces between some words, and changing the font. It took a lot of editing to get my message readable. Thanks.)
