The Powell Doctrine

"I wonder if Walt Disney would be proud." I didn't think it was possible, but my dislike of Michael Powell just doubled. As FCC Chairman he has basically acted as an overpaid nanny for the country, believing it is his duty to impress his prudish values on us all in the condescending belief that we don't know any better. It's hard to convey how ridiculous the Janet Jackson incident seemed from a British viewpoint, when late-night TV in the UK is regularly more risque and yet still the British people haven't turned to pillars of salt.
