"Do you think including such a scene in ER falls under the category of "educational content"?"
It might be, depending on how it is presented.
Remember the mini-series "Roots" way back in 1977? They showed full butt-crack scenes of the "natives" on the slave ships. These "natives" were actors from Hollywood. A butt is a butt no matter what color it is. Nobody complained because it a depicted a historical fact.
I'm not condoning nudity on TV, but if it's done in the interest of science or history, then I think we should relax a bit about seeing a bare breast or a naked rump.
Janet Jackson's display was totally uncalled for.
BTW, I called Direct TV yesterday and cancelled NBC and CBS from our programming.
I won't relax until they are as free and loose in showing those parts that men cover up, as they are with the parts women cover up.
