Kent Brockman utters a swear word on live television when coffee is spilt on his lab. Patrolling the airwaves for indecent material, Ned starts a campaign to protest Kent and his news station. The FCC fines the station and Kent gets demoted and eventually fired. With Lisa's help, Kent webcasts the truth about media's ownership by big corporations (ala "Good Night and Good Luck"). In order to stop his rants, his former station (controlled by the Republican party) offers him his old anchor job back and Kent accepts.
