FCC Blesses Red Sox Slugger's F-Bomb During Pre-Game Tribute to Boston

During an emotional pre-game tribute to the fallen and the heroes of the Boston Marathon bombings Saturday, Red Sox slugger David Ortiz dropped an f-bomb in front of the Fenway crowd.

For those interested in what Ortiz specifically said, the Hollywood Reporter has the full story in which it claimed the above tweet was sent by FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski.

Is he right?
