‘Deplorable stunt?’

What’s the surprise?

Reacting to Janet Jackson’s “unveiling” at the Super Bowl, FCC chief Michael Powell said: “Like millions of Americans, my family and I gathered around the television set for a celebration. Instead, that celebration was tainted by a classless, crass, and deplorable stunt.’

What’s the surprise? That’s a great description of what the networks present to us every night.
