02 Feb 2004 Three Cheers for Michael Powell
Three cheers for Michael Powell. An FCC press release today:
FCC CHAIRMAN POWELL CALLS SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW A “CLASSLESS, CRASS, DEPLORABLE STUNT.” OPENS INVESTIGATION
FCC Chairman Michael Powell today issued the following statement:
“I am outraged at what I saw during the halftime show of the Super Bowl. Like millions of Americans, my family and I gathered around the television for a celebration. Instead, that celebration was tainted by a classless, crass and deplorable stunt. Our nation’s children, parents and citizens deserve better.
“I have instructed the Commission to open an immediate investigation into last night’s broadcast. Our investigation will be thorough and swift.”
Good for him. I am appalled to think that perhaps we can’t let our children watch the NFL anymore. I hope the outcry from the public on this travesty is thunderous.
