Fox censors anti war remark by actress Sally Field


This video is called OUTFOXED: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism.

From the Los Angeles Times in the USA:

Fox cuts away as Sally Field speaks her mind on war

Sally Field, honored for her portrayal of Nora Walker, the matriarch of ABC’sBrothers & Sisters,” used her time onstage for an antiwar statement.

“At the heart of Nora Walker, she is a mother,” Field said. “So surely this belongs to all the mothers of the world. May they be seen, may their work be valued. . . And to especially the mothers who stand with an open heart and wait, wait for their children to come home, from danger. . . from war.”

“And let’s face it,” added Field, whose character’s son was deployed at the end of last season. “If the mothers ruled the world, there would be no goddamn war in the first place!”

But viewers missed most of her last sentence, as Fox cut away to the back of the auditorium.
