Rock Blames Jackson's Super Bowl Flash For 'Censorship'

CHRIS ROCK blames the JANET JACKSON breast-baring controversy at the 2004 SUPER BOWL for the current atmosphere of censorship he feels is sweeping America.

The HEAD OF STATE star, who hosted the OSCARS last month (FEB05), believes the clamping down has less to do with the re-election of US President GEORGE W BUSH in November (04), than it does with the moment pop superstar Jackson bared her breast on national TV.

Rock says, "They're trying to implement an atmosphere of censorship.

"A lot of that has to do with Janet Jackson whipping out her tit at the Super Bowl. Was I shocked? I was surprised to see a tit at the Super Bowl. Especially her tit - a 40-year-old tit."
