George Carlin on the change of American censorship

I was looking for clips of Flip Wilson when I stumbled upon this excerpt from his visit to the the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. After a brief introduction George Carlin makes his way out onto the guests' couch. I find the conversation, and the show's sponsor seen at the end of the clip, to be an interesting look at American values.

"Don't you find it ironic at all, that television pushes beer (alcohol, the number two killer drug in the world) down our throats twenty-four hours a day, with beautiful half-naked women and the promise of "freedom and infinite sex appeal," while also maintaining a division of their corporate empire called "Standards and Practices"?"
