PBS will feed stations an expletive-deleted version of next Tuesday's show Frontline. The documentary A Company of Soldiers contains "raw" language used by troops in Iraq. PBS says it can't ensure that stations won't face FCC fines if the show airs unedited. Frontline executive producers say none of the expletives violate indecency rules.
