More nipple, uh, coverage

"The Great Nipple Hunt continues," writes Jeff Jarvis. "We've been dutifully reporting attacks of prudes on tipples and now here's another case of national mammarophobia: 'Teen actress Lindsay Lohan's breasts have been digitally reduced for forthcoming Disney film Herbie: Fully Loaded, to avoid offending family audiences. Test screenings...indicated that some parents felt Lohan's character Maggie Peyton was too raunchy for a children's film. Disney technicians [altered scenes] showing the busty actress jumping up and down at a motor racing track, reducing her breasts by two cup sizes and raising revealing necklines on her T-shirts.' The director denies it. The problem these days -- when grown people make news hunting down nipples -- is that you can't tell the parody from the truth...All of which leads to just one conclusion: In America, breasts are news.
