"Oscars chiefs are furious as the US television network broadcasting the Academy Awards ceremony is insisting on a delayed transmission following Janet Jackson's breast exposure."

Ah the power of a publicity-stunt. I see even the "Boo" thread has popped out again...

Wonder how much Ms Jackson's marketing chaps got for dreaming it all up in the first place?

Can you spell cable of Direct TV. So much for being LIVE! But that fifteen second delay tactic has been around for a long time, Leno and Letterman and such use it all the time but they forget to tell you.

FWIW, I'm sick and damn tired of the whole teapest in a tempot. It should go away now. Michael Powell (FCC) has had his fifteen minutes of fame (plus a thousand or so more - which for a geekboy like him is wayyyyyyy too many.) The congressdweebies have had a chance to posture for the backwoods pulpit and adultery set. The NFL has had a chance to get all righteous about four square inches of flesh - even though their second-largest draw at each game is forty young women with a lot more than that exposed. CBS' moral outrage has managed to almost stifle the chortling of their accountants and the jingle of the money bags. MTV has wept its crocodile tears. And Ms. Jackson is still a declining diva.

So enough already.
