scarborough drops f-bomb on live television

from raw replay: MSNBC broadcasted uncensored profanity today on Morning Joe. Joe Scarborough was talking about Rahm Emanuel when he used the F-word. Scarborough said, “The nature of this campaign has really been the steady nature of Barack Obama, the steady nature of David Axelrod, the not-so-steady nature of Robert Gibbs - only because he went to Auburn - but these are good decent steady men. that don’t go around flipping people off or screaming ‘fuck you’ at the top of their lungs.” This video is from MSNBC’s Morning Joe, broadcast November 10, 2008.

update: scarborough now guarded by a seven-second delay
from thinkprogress: Yesterday, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough accidentally dropped the f-bomb while live on air. After apologizing, Scarborough said, “My wife is going to kill me when I get home.” ... The show will now have a seven-second delay to protect against future outbursts. An MSNBC spokesman said that no other shows on the network will have the delay, which was reportedly a “mutual decision.” Former MSNBC morning host Don Imus had a similar arrangement on his show.
