Absurdity of network censorship

From the blog by Lee Goldberg (novelist and TV writer of Monk, Diagnosis Murder among many more)

No Redeeming Value

an excerpt:  …The network will limit how many times you can say “Damn” in an episode but you can talk all you want, and in considerable detail, about a pedophiles raping children…But don’t you dare show a woman’s nipple (unless it has been mutilated and belongs to a corpse) or two people naked (unless they’re covered in blood and, preferably, dead), or having sex (unless you’re rescuing a victim from being molested or raped)…
