Activists win a round in TV's culture war |

Activists win a round in TV's culture war | "LOS ANGELES – It's a familiar drill in the culture wars: Break out the poster board, fire off letters to advertisers, and take to the airwaves, decrying a piece of art or entertainment that activists believe is inaccurate or beyond the pale of good taste. It's been tried with everything from 'Murphy Brown' to 'The Passion.' What's so unusual is that, this time, it appears to have worked.

Some say it's just a hard-nosed business decision in a cutthroat TV world. Others see a high-stakes war over issues of self-censorship, undue influence, and artistic license."

And the Conservative Media is born, err, becoming an adult.
