Graham, the director of films in ABC's broadcast standards and practices division, in which she said that "Kevin Kline's mockery" of Palin will be reduced by editing where possible.

First came news that the NCAA -- facing a lawsuit over use of athletes' names and likenesses -- will drop its lucrative relationship with the video-game maker.
