OTOH, Miller's math is off. If the FCC received 531,000 letters and if there
were approximately 9 million SuperBowl viewers (which, right or wrong, is
the number Miller used), the percentage of complainers was not less than 1%
as Miller's letter said, but much closer to 6%. If indeed 6% of the viewers
complained, it's a signficant fraction, because a lot of people who felt
offended would surely noy have bothered to complain. Now, if the number of
vewers was approximately 60 million--a believable number; it's less than 1/4
of the US population, he'd be correct about the percentage who complained.
