Keep in mind that Family Guy
-- a cartoon -- is one of the most watched programs on television with children ages 6-11.
They hide behind satire and animation as an "excuse" to air the foulest material imaginable, but they need to learn that broadcast decency laws apply to all broadcast programming
that airs during the time children are most likely to be watching.
In the December 13th episode of Fox's filthy Family Guy (9:00 p.m. ET), loutish Peter takes his father-in-law and friends to a strip club named the
"Fuzzy Clam" (a vulgar term for female genitalia). Peter tells a stripper to perform a lap dance on his father-in-law. She bends over and waggles her rear before his face.
"Do I stick the money right inside of her?" he asks. When Peter replies,
"No, you do not," his father-in-law asks,
"Why? Have you done that before?" Peter giggles nervously. As the woman briefly rubs her rear against the father-in-law's crotch, he asks,
"When do I hit her?" Peter pours beer down his in-law's throat and orders the stripper to
"give this old bastard the ride of his life." The stripper writhes up and down against the father-in-law's body, shakes her breasts in his face, then straddles his lap and thrusts her groin against his. Lois' father grunts in pleasure, then spasms and collapses to the ground as he has a heart attack.
Remember: All this occurred in the program's first few minutes -- meaning that families in the Midwest saw this at
Sunday evening used to be home to the highest-quality family viewing on television. Remember The Wonderful World of Disney, Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom and the Sunday Mystery Movie? TV Network executives today seem more interested in assaulting families than entertaining them.
Families who watch TV together on Sunday night shouldn't be bombarded by content more appropriate to the Playboy Channel than to broadcast television. Is this how Fox upholds its obligation to use the people's airwaves
"in the public interest?"
If you're sick of Family Guy violating YOUR airwaves, you can
TAKE ACTION NOW! And please, forward this note to your friends and relatives who share your values about protecting innocent children from indecent TV content.
