    THE SECOND IMPEACHMENT TRIAL OF FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP -- Impeachment Trial Goes Blue, Forcing Network Language Calls FApN2

    David Bauder, AP Media Writer wrote:NEW YORK (AP) — During a gripping 13 minutes at the start of Donald Trump's second impeachment trial Tuesday, television's biggest networks aired footage of the U.S. Capitol siege with unusually explicit language.

    The tape, compiled from several sources by the House impeachment managers, offered a chronological view of the former president's statements on Jan. 6 and the actions by a mob of his supporters as they broke into the Capitol.

    It included several examples of rough language, including a chant, “f—- the blue,” apparently directed at police officers, and use of the word “motherf——-” by a rioter. The footage was aired on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC as part of live coverage of the trial's first day.

    Not only was the language heard, but some of it was written on the screen by preparers of the tape, in case the audio wasn't clear.

    Airing such language is a tough call, but news executives have to judge whether it is their role to censor what is being shown on the floor of the U.S. Senate, said retired NBC News executive Bill Wheatley.

    “It helped communicate the passion and the terror that was going on at the time,” Wheatley said. “To have been bleeping it constantly might have been a disservice to what actually happened.”

    Society in general has grown coarser over the years and television has reflected that. News organizations were tested in 2018 when then-President Trump made a reference to “s—-hole countries” in Africa and Central America. But Tuesday's language was the type frowned upon by the Federal Communications Commission, and aired in the daytime when children could be expected to be watching.

    Broadcast networks are subject to FCC fines if someone complains about the language. Cable networks, since they are subscription services, have more leniency when it comes to the words they use.

    NBC News reporters had anticipated rough language, according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity because the network doesn't talk about internal editorial calls. The network put a warning label onscreen when video of the Capitol demonstration aired.

    CBS News had not been told ahead of time to expect the language, a spokeswoman said. But since the network was familiar with some of the videos that had been circulating, executives anticipated the possibility and the network's legal department advised that it was OK to air what the impeachment managers presented. Offending language would be edited out in subsequent airings of any video.

    At ABC News, the language took the network by surprise, said a person familiar with the matter who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

    It left the network in an awkward position: It wasn't able to clean up language on the fly, because that would require airing the video on a delayed basis. But if the video was aired on delay, that would put the network out of sync when impeachment managers resumed speaking live.

    “I was pretty surprised to see it today,” said Rick Davis, who just retired after 22 years as executive vice president of standards at CNN. Davis' daughter, knowing dad's old job, texted him about it just after it aired.

    He understands why the impeachment managers used it, since it was important to make the jurors see, feel and experience what happened. It's different for the networks.

    “I think it would be one of those situations where I'd huddle with my other smart colleagues and make a decision,” Davis said. “I don't mean to make that sound like a copout. It's a tough choice.”

    No matter how news executives came to the decision to air it, many television commentators spoke to its potential impact on viewers, if not the Senators who will vote on whether or not to impeach Trump. NBC News reporter Garrett Haake, who was reporting on the proceedings, said it appeared that some senators watching were seeing the footage for the first time.

    “It's one of the most powerful and disturbing pieces of evidence that I've seen at the opening of a trial,” said MSNBC's Ari Melber.

    Let me comment on the subject matter first, then I'll add additional commentary to the Big Topic.

    Yes, normally when footage like this makes the AM hours, you can expect it to be bleeped out or censored.  But given how severe it was, if this was played out in a courtroom, and the networks got this ahead of time, you can bet they all would have to censor the language before airing.  As it was told in this article, some networks got the footage ahead of time, others did not.  Either way, it has been aired over most networks uncensored.  If they decide to air it again, it will be censored.

    Now, to the Big Topic.  I watched that 13 minute video of riot at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.  And each minute got me hot.  Each minute of the whole video angered me.  How could these... people call themselves "patriots?  If you were one of those people who stormed the U.S. Capitol building for the sole purpose of stopping the count from the Electoral College, chanting "Fight For Trump", chanting "Hang Mike Pence", and all of this in the name of, and direction from Donald Trump (who by the way was two weeks away from the end of his term), let me make this perfectly clear to you all...

    YOU ARE NOT A PATRIOT!  THAT WAS NOT A SHOW OF PATRIOTISM!  THAT WAS AN ACT OF DOMESTIC TERRORISM!

    Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else.
    THEODORE ROOSEVELT
    26th President of the United States

    President Roosevelt breaks down "Patriotism" in this quote.  Mr. Roosevelt knew what a Patriot was and what he/she represented.

    What happened of January 6th wasn't patriotism.  Anyone who tells me otherwise is so Trump deep, he will swear darkness is light.

    Just Saying.
