The outrage over the superbowl boob-show (latest news: Janet Jackson is going to be sued)
has been followed, and mostly misunderstood, in Spain. It's considered moral hypocrisy, and, quite obviously, censorship.
Just for this once, I understand the reaction of the FTC and the american public. It's not about censorship, it's about choice. American people mostly want to have the possibility of choosing what they want to watch in prime time open TV. Explicit sex is mostly confined to cable and satellite broadcast, as well as explicit four-letter words. If you want that, you'll have to pay for it. It's also about protection of minorities. Many americans belong to more-or-less conservative religions, and there are huge muslim minorities all over the country. Buddhists too, but I don't think they much care about that. It's also about protection of those minorities: there's more or less an agreement on keeping all open channels "kid-safe", whatever that means. I don't believe in that, and I still think the brand of censorship practiced in the USA (for instance, censoring Stallone and Russell's butts in "Tango and Cash") is kind of stupid, but I can understand that.
