Meredith Vieira, a 13-year-old, and the c-word. The Today Show does not get much better than this. Recently, “Meredith Vieira interviewed [Kayla Manson,] a thirteen year-old girl who is a possible accomplice in a beating that resulted from a text message war. She mentioned some of the language used, including” cunt. Kayla Manson was asked a simple question and gave the honest answer…to millions on national television. I wonder if the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will fine The Today Show and NBC as they would have fined Howard Stern and WXRK – owned by CBS Radio – for allowing that word to be broadcast. Remember, cunt is one of the seven dirty words that can’t be said over live broadcasts.
