I am Shocked, Jocked!

Clear Channel, everybody's favorite radio network, has decided to respond to the horror of seeing Janet Jackson's breast on live TV by isssuing new guidelines for their shows. The "Zero Tolerance" policy apparently went into effect on Wednesday. By today they had listened to Howard Stern's show and decided it was inappropriate and suspended him. They also fired "Bubba the Love Sponge" (?). Their reaction seems a little contrived, however. I assume that after some 20 years on the air, they knew what Stern's show consisted of, but they still felt the need to listen to him once before they could announce that they felt he didn't meet their decency standards?
