I had not yet heard of the Les Nessman memorial Turkey Drop. It's a 70's sitcom thing, but has a large and current following. By lucky coincidence I had started thinking along these lines again upon witnesses an E! special about Muffler Men featuring interviews with Bill Griffith of Zippy fame (Yow!).

Les Nessman says:

In a situation like this, I always ask myself, what would my hero Edward R. Murrow think? And I think that Ed would think that this was censorship. Then I think about what my other hero, General George Patton, would think, and I think George would think that radio and television ought to be cleaned up, and if he were alive today, he'd take two armoured calvalry divisions into Hollywood and knock all those liberal pinheads into the Pacific! So as you can see, I'm a very confused man. And when I get confused, I watch TV. Television is never confusing. It's all so simple somehow.
