OK, I'll mention Charlie Sheen

CBS is suddenly discovering its moral standards.

It is firing Charlie Sheen for breaches of the moral clause of his contract. This is the network that created and brought us one of the sleaziest comedies ever, Two-and-a-half Men. The show celebrates inebriation, promiscuity, irresponsibility, and all the other malefactories of drink and sex.

I love Two-and-a-half Men. I hope to see every episode, if I haven't already. But, contrary to whomever governs CBS, I have no complaint about the sleaziness. I know that my watching it implicates me in its dirt. On the other hand, here comes CBS, totally without scruples, to pass judgment on someone else. What hypocrisy.
