Journalists May Now Be Fined For Using Foul Language On Air

Following the law protecting children and teenagers from harmful information, Russian law-makers now hope to place heavy fines on those journalists who can't help but use swearing language "at work".

      Although foul language is unlikely to painfully hurt anyone - so frequently is it being used in Russia - there is a growing disgust with the state of things. The younger generation needs to be protected, and the only way to solve the problem seems to fine adults.

      Since the law against harmful information first and foremost concerns the Russian mass-media, including the papers and TV, those mass-media outlets that broadcast information in foul language will be subject to up to RUB 200,000 (~$6450). The bill has been introduced to the Duma and will be reviewed soon.
