Words, words, bloody offensive words . . .

On Thursday, January 13, 2011, the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (also known as the CBSC) declared that the song "Money for Nothing", recorded and sung by the group "Dire Straits" should be banned from Canadian airwaves. Their ruling stated that the song contravenes the human rights clauses of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Code of Ethics and Equitable Portrayal Code. This ruling was brought down in response to a complaint brought forward by a listener to radio station CHOZ-FM in St. John's.
