That was a shock to me, too. You would have thought there would be an ABA
requirement for broadcasters to label 're-enactment' or 'digitally edited'
on the footage. Oh, wait. The ABA is run by David Flint. Sorry, go back
to your coffee.
But your point about the delay system is interesting. Prompted by the
Janet Jackson affair I'm sure. I don't think Australians would have the
same mental framework for that as Americans. I'm sure that was a huge huge
huge shocker in the US. Much bigger even than the coffin pictures.
