JACKSON IN TROUBLE AGAIN: Elsewhere in the crazy world of media regulation, Ofcom have come down like a tonne of bricks on Sony Records and Michael Jackson after a fan complained that he'd bought a DVD which he'd seen advertised with footage of the Smooth Criminal video, only to find when he got it home that Smooth Criminal wasn't on the DVD at all. Personally, we'd have offered up a small thank you to the Lord and sent Sony Records a basket of fruit at this point, but instead this chap complained; Sony apologised and was told off for breaching advertising guidelines by airing a misleading ad. Something similar happened with a Cher CD, but I don't think any of us give a shit about the details on that one, do we?
