There was an article in "Electronic Media"'s February 13 issue; probably
covered in "Broadcasting" too.  For your information, a group of University
of Wisconsin students pulled off a similar hoax last November on Springer
with the topic "women who love men who are addicted to pornography" or some
such.  I can give you info on that if you would like.
