"Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction [at the Super Bowl] was a watershed event," said Schenck
."But it's the culmination of something that's been building for a long time.It's a problem also that affiliates don't have control over what we get from the network.It's tough because we don't get to see programs in advance but must determine what's right for our local audience."
