I watched the Super Bowl. I saw the tawdry staged event at the end of half time. I replayed it several times on the Tivo, a few times in slow motion. Needless to say, I was amused rather than offended, and my main reaction was that the whole thing was utterly pathetic. The other night I was watching the local news, where the anchor was made to grovel before the viewing public and beg for forgiveness for transmitting filth into their homes or whatever. Also pathetic. All this is just a lead into this brilliant letter to the editors of the Boston Globe, comparing CBS’ decision to refuse MoveOn.org’s ad about the dangers of the deficit when they were willing to accept the MTV halftime show. It also leaves out the fact that CBS showed plenty of other advocacy ads, advocating not smoking and not using drugs. I agree with the writer that CBS has no clue whatsoever where the line should be.
