On 'Hannity,' MRC's Bozell Demands Feds Investigate MTV's 'Skins' for Possibly Violating Child Porn Laws
MTV's racy new teen drama "Skins" should be investigated by federal authorities for potentially violating child porn laws, NewsBusters publisher and Media Research Center president Brent Bozell insisted in the second half of the "Media Mash" segment on the January 20 edition of "Hannity."
MTV "broadcast[s] the fact that it is underage teenagers that they are putting on the air" portraying sexually active teens. "Guess what... it's rated TV-MA. That's the highest rating you can get on television," Bozell noted [video follows after page break; click here for MP3 audio]:
That means it's rated for mature audience. That means it's rated for adults. This is a program they're giving to adults about children. You know what we call that, Sean, in the real world? It's called kiddie porn.
For their executives to be saying that they had no idea that this was going to get them in trouble, how dare they?! How can they not know that it's wrong to feature children involved in sex and drugs and alcohol?!
I hope that the feds look into this and I hope that if they determine that they've done something wrong, I hope they slap the book at these people for once and for all.
