Network (Simpsons RMX)

· You Kent Always Say What You Want (S18EP22 - 05.20.2007)
The twenty-second episode of The Simpsons' eighteenth season, aired as part of the one hour season finale alongside the episode "24 Minutes". It's the 400th episode of the series.
This episode, formerly known as "The Kent State Massacre", was renamed in light of the Virginia Tech massacre, which occurred only a month before the episode was set to air.
The episode was intended to spoof increased fines by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the wake of the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction. However, a month before the episode aired, Don Imus was fired for remarks he made on the air about the Rutgers University women's basketball team. Similarly, Brockman wasn't immediately fired for his comments.
"There's no place for truth -nor bravery- in today's media"
- Lisa Simpson

"FOX deliberately runs shows that will 'earn' them huge fines, which are then funneled through the FCC straight to the Republican party. Everybody in the media knows it, but no-one has the guts to say it!"
- Kent Brockman
