The boycotts that you speak of had no effect.
I don’t think MTV would say that… But like I said, I doubt something like that will happen again.
You are upset about the Super Bowl because it was unexpected. Yet, when a father is channel surfing or using the scan on a car radio and Howard stern is using profanity that too is unexpected. If you have your 7 year old daughter in the car you are in the same unenviable position that you are in with the Super Bowl fiasco.
Not quite the same position. First off, I know there is inappriate material for children on both TV and Radio, morning, day, and night. If I were scanning I would know to be careful and what to expect. However, when you select a show that you know is safe, it is quite unexpected to see what we did.
Also, I’m not up on technology, but having something for a TV like you can for the internet, meaning allowing your choice of content, would be the answer for TV.
It is my guess that you do not have young children, am I right?
That is correct.
