What kind of world do we live in when a family can't sit together and watch the super bowl without seeing such obscenity?The Parents Television Council is tackling Sunday’s Super Bowl controversy. British singer M.I.A. flipped off viewers during Madonna’s halftime show, a gesture that instantly drew comparisons to Janet Jackson’s live “wardrobe malfunction” in 2004.

“NBC fumbled and the NFL lied because a performer known as M.I.A. felt it necessary to flip off millions of families,” wrote PTC president Tim Winter. “It is unfortunate that a spectacular sporting event was overshadowed once again by broadcasting the selfish acts of a desperate performer.
