Women's Groups Appeal to NBC's Legal and Corporate Responsibility Asking for a Halt to 'The Playboy
Christian News Wire ^ | June 22, 2011 | Lesley Bateman

"The Playboy Club," described as a "provocative new series" about a "visionary who created an empire and an icon who changed American culture," glorifies the objectification of women and violates the spirit of FCC licensing laws according to several women's groups.

FCC licensing laws require broadcasters to serve "public interest, convenience and necessity," to protect people from exploitation of their valuable public utility.

NBC is appearing to defy FCC laws, while contributing to sexualization/victimization of women, which results in trafficking, rape and prostitution. "NBC has stockholder responsibility to produce enriching programming," stated Tiffany Leeper, President of Girls Against Porn & Human Trafficking.

The show portrays Hugh Hefner who has objectified women and girls, normalized porn addictions, destroyed families and distributed hardcore pornography, which should be prosecuted under U.S. Federal (18 U.S.C. § 1460) and state obscenity laws.

"It's disturbing a public company is producing a series portraying a pornographer -- which children will see. NBC's stockholders should reconsider their investments," stated Leeper.

"With 27 million slaves trafficked globally, NBC is marketing women and girls as sexual objects, further promoting sex trafficking," said Leeper.

"Porn is sex trafficking. I know because I was enslaved," said Shelley Lubben, former porn actress and Pink Cross Foundation President.

NBC's action is a violation of Comcast's "Ethical Standards" of "integrity.”

Dr. Judith Reisman, principal investigator of Images of Children, Crime & Violence in Playboy, Penthouse and Hustler stated, "In 1994 Playboy lost its Netherlands libel lawsuit after we proved Playboy promoted sex trafficking, kidnapping, prostitution, incest, rape of women/children and sexual harassment."

Groups are gathering signatures to petition NBC to halt the show:

Dr. Reisman focuses on pornography's effects on the developing brain as an erototoxin and on the growing sex industrial complex, www.drjudithreisman.com.

When anyone finds the sense of “responsibility” at NBC, please ping me - I think it’s non-existent.

pornography has helped destroy this culture.

“Dr. Reisman focuses on pornography's effects on the developing brain as an erototoxin ....”

IOW, she studies how porn causes brain rot.

Someone needs to study how watching The View causes brain rot. Maybe they could call the show a ‘skankotoxin’.

What they are really saying is “WAAAAAAA not a single one of us is attractive enough to be a bunny so therefore banish the bunnies”

Devoted Christians, whether of personally ugly or stunning looks, commonly agree that the whole Playboy world is a manifestation of sin, a gaggle of vain idols. The bunnies at least used to be required to be of highly unrealistic body measurements, and Playboy never said squat about how their patrons ought to look (if all was fair, they should all look like Arnold Schwarzeneggar).

Flip it around: “Not a single one of us is rich enough to attract a bunny so therefore...”

Be very surprised if they weren’t — it’s only logical.

I am just guessing how many years before there is kiddie porn on the Cartoon Network in prime time.

No, Reisman proved that Kinsey was a sexual predator who hired pedophiles to abuse babies and do sexual experiments on them...Kinsey also had contact with the NAZI’s who sexually abused children in Germany for kicks and perverted thrills and reported lies as facts to change the Christian paradigm to that of the hedonist/atheist. Homosexuality and pederasty was rampantly practiced by Nazi brownshirts as it was with Kinsey who tried to make it seem normal since he practiced it and wanted access to children and pornography which he and his “wife” viewed constantly—along with participation in orgies. All our textbooks are filled with his “ideas” which were from a sick perverted atheist mind, glorified by the socialist Foundations and funded to be promoted in public school.

These people who deal in pornography treat people as commodities—sex is meaningless to be bought and sold and exploited...it demeans human beings and should never be condoned or respected in a civil society that is built on Universal Truth and the dignity and respect of all. Vulgar promotion is to destroy culture.because it destroys relationships between women and men and leaves children in daycare or without two loving biological parents.....it is the children who are destroyed and that always destroys the future of societies.

Obscenity and evil was never supposed to be supported and protected in America—because it exploits and destroys civil societies. Communism was never allowed either and same with abortion and contracts of marriage to be meaningless (no fault).....how did the legal system twist the intent and meaning of the Constitution to something the exact opposite of what it was in 1786. Communists rotted and twisted the meaning of the great document.

Watching TV does rot the brain....the effect of tv does not integrate the brain in ways that radio and reading does....it stunts the structure of the brain. All studies show that the more TV watched, the lower IQ....especially in children. Children are also denied the use of all the senses in learning which is directly correlated with IQ and common sense.

Don’t let your children waste their time watching tv. Make it very rare...and be very selective of what ideas you are allowing into their heads. It forms their worldview and the communists are selling their sick twisted ideas in most media—trying to destroy morality, responsible behavior, and perseverance—those qualities that formed the greatest country in the world.

Nothing creates buzz for a new television show like “concerned” citizens trying to pressure the network to censor it.

Married with Children was a low rated unknown program on the nearly unwatched new Fox network, until a busybody with a fax machine bombarded the media with messages of how depraved the show was. The publicity saved the show. That’s how MWC became a hit.

Since then, I expect most similar censorship campaigns are astrotuf.

Never saw that—Thanks.

I read Judith Reisman’s book. It is a crime that Hollywood and Liam Neeson glorified this evil, sick man and produced such propaganda for the stupid masses....but since the producer was a homosexual himself, the agenda marches on and insanity reigns: homosexuality is “good”, beastiality is “good”, incest is “good”.....all sex is “good” .

Rockefeller Foundation should be sued and destroyed for the evil that they perpetuated by promoting this garbage in society and in Sex Ed in all public schools.

We wonder why there was a sex revolution in the 60’s when these pedophiles and cultural Marxists forced this cr*p in society in the early 50’s and glorified it with millions of dollars by marxist foundations.
