The Parents Television Council, which was one of the organizations instrumental in getting ABC and Terrell Owens to apologize for that tepid locker room skit with Owens and Nicolette Sheridan before the Monday Night Football game, is now going after basic cable, according to its website. Tim Winter, executive director of the PTC, called the ABC skit “grossly irresponsible” and “yet another symptom of television network arrogance, piping sexual content into America’s living rooms at a time when millions of children are watching.” PTC president Brent Bozell took a look at MTV, Spike, Comedy Central, TBS, E!, FX, and ESPN and saw Satan in the form of explicit dialogue, strippers, nudity, threesomes, masturbation, anal sex, oral sex, statutory rape, sadomasochism, bestiality, incest, and sodomy. “It is unconscionable for the cable industry to force families to subsidize this kind of filth in order to access the wholesome, educational and family-friendly programming available on a handful of basic cable channels,” Bozell said. So, soon TV will be all PAX all the time.
