The Daily Stern
: I just called into the Stern show and told Howard about my little investigation of the FCC and its $1.2 million fine against Fox below (and talked too fast and plugged the blog twice).
Howard said the one thing he really wanted to get out of Michael Powell when he called him on Ronn Owens’ show was whether they really investigated Viacom and found a conspiracy with Janet Jackson to bare her boob, leading to their $500k fine. I said that I’d blogged that reporters should look into that. And then I said I’d make that my next FOIA request to the FCC, demanding to see any notes relating to Viacom’s direct responsibility for Jackson’s titanian tit. He told me to call back when I got it.
For any Stern fans coming here, I’m one, too (to the consternation of some folks around here — f’ ’em). Here are some of the posts I’ve written about free speech and Stern and here‘s a cover story I wrote in The Nation about it all.
