The Wizard of Oz

Michael Powell editorial in the NYT - makes you almost feel sorry for the poor guy, but nicely sustains a huge gap for disruptive media innovation, by forcing big old media to stay hidebound:

"...But we are not the federal Bureau of Indecency. We do not watch or listen to programs hoping to catch purveyors of dirty broadcasts. Instead, we rely on public complaints to point out potentially indecent shows. In recent years, complaints about television and radio broadcasts have skyrocketed, and the F.C.C. has stepped up its enforcement in response. Advocacy groups do generate many complaints, as our critics note, but that's not unusual in today's Internet world."

Bolding's mine.
