Parents Television Council Slams NBC for Hiring Howard Stern

by at . Comments

If NBC was aiming to create headlines with its hiring of Howard Stern as a judge on America's Got Talent, the network can consider its mission accomplished.

Of course, not all headlines are positive, especially not that highlighted by the always-grumpy Parents Television Council.

Referring to Stern as Stern in a statement as "a performer who is synonymous with shock, profanity and obscenity," the PTC added:

"The once-proud broadcast network has lost its way and has made it clear it holds no concern whatsoever for children and families... Not coincidentally, in just over three weeks the network will be standing before the United States Supreme Court arguing for the right to use the F-word at any time of the day, even in front of children."

What do you think of Stern's hiring? Will he make for an acceptable judge?

He's a P I G; a pig sometimes.
You've got to love the guy. He's smart, entertaining and honest. I would trust him more then most preachers; you know the pediphiles and crooks and adulterers and born again politicians. Common ordinary preachers, getting rich by attacking others.
Howard has it over most people. He does his thing for entertainment; that's the buisness he is in...

The PTC, as is usual for right wing groups, is twisting information to the point of lying. That supreme court thing they are mentioning is so far from the truth. NBC is not fighting to say the F-word all day long "in front of your children". Groups such as this one use scare tactics and lies in order to try to push their backwards, religio-fascist agenda on the rest of us. Hey PTC-if you don't like it, don't watch! That's what regular people do.
