The People and the Chairman
Jeff Jarvis has a great post on the over 500 complaints the FCC received following the Desperate Housewives ad, where (gasp! shudder!!) a woman's naked back
was briefly exposed. So what's great about over 500 complaints? Well, they're directed against the Chairman and his cronies! Jeff's post quotes some of the best complaints, along with a link to others. The title of his post sums them all up nicely: Take that, Michael Powell!
Regarding the volume of compaints, Jeff notes:
that is about 170 times more letters than were penned in complaint against Married by America, yielding the biggest fine in FCC history. By this scale, then, Michael Powell should resign immediately and take the rest of the National Board of Prigs and Prudes with him.
To which I can only add: Amen!
