PBS to affiliates: On Your Own for Frontline Documentary

slashgirl writes “‘NEW YORK – PBS has warned its affiliates that it can’t insure them against profanity fines if they air a raw version of a documentary about soldiers in Iraq.

The public broadcaster is distributing “clean” and “raw” versions of the documentary A Company of Soldiers, set to air on Frontline Tuesday. The original piece contains 13 expletives spoken by soldiers, but producers have created a version with the words edited out.’
