Parents Television Council Slams CNN, Kathy Griffin for Faux Job

by at . Comments

Okay, Parents Television Council, you may have a point this time.

Following CNN's New Year's Eve broadcast, during which Kathy Griffen feigned oral sex on Anderson Cooper, the organization has come out with harsh words for the comedian and network.

Griffin "has shown increasing contempt for the audience," PTC President Tim Winter said in a statement, adding that "the onus is now on CNN....

"Either the network has a policy that allows its on-air talent to fondle a co-anchor's genitals, or it has a policy that forbids such conduct."

What about the fact that the incident didn't take place until after midnight? Hogwash, Winter basically says: New Year's Eve is the one time kids stay up that late with parental permission!

Where do you stand on this issue, THGers? Katrhy Griffin simulating oral sex on live television is...

Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper were both hysterical. Sure, Kathy pushed the envelope quite a bit, but so what? One night out of the year doesn't seem like asking too much to allow them to cut loose and have some bawdy fun, especially on the most festive and raucous night of the year. This is the sixth year they've done it, and people know what to expect. The prudes at the Parents Television Council should simply encourage people to change the channel. But at the New Year's Eve party I was at, everyone was laughing their asses off.

Well done, Kathy! Let the unenlightened rant as they might, and what were they thinking letting their kids stay up that late anyhow? You are a Godess and have moved up 5 places on my MIL* list.

She is disgusting trash...She resorts to "sex sells" in order to get a laugh or attention. She's a television whore and proved it by messing with Anderson. Why didn't Anderson just turn on her and say, "Get me someone else to co-anchor....NOW!"
This country is FUBAR'ed and its because of hideous entertainers such as her.
