Which is more significant, a superbowl wardrobe malfunction, or...

Recommended Posts

I was actually watching that channel 10 minutes after it happened, so I missed the gay porn. :(

I was eating breakfast and the news guy said "CHCH would like to sincerely apologize for the inappropriate content that aired at 9:30am. It was aired by someone outside of CHCH and we are investigating it now", so I was like oh shit I missed something good.

Super Bowl attracts a much larger audience, so obviously anything that happens there is more significant.

I thought TV networks had some kind of panic button which cuts the broadcast in the event of something like this happening? Apparently they don't, so maybe they should think about setting one up.

Not that it's that terrible and shocking, when the news could be reporting the real horrors going on in the world in the first place. But children don't need to be inadvertently exposed to that kind of thing.

Probably wouldn't have helped them, looks like the news feed was interfered with after it had left the station.

"The station blamed the mixup on a switching error at one of the cable companies that picks up its signal."

Or when the Flintstones on Cartoon Network had 30 seconds of uninterrupted porn sex from Spice network in the late 90s.

Ironically, the parents that crusade against "internet perversion" are the same idiots that support "smaller government" and are "anti-nanny state."

It also doesn't help that most of these idiot mother don't know anything beyond missionary.

Wardrobe malfunction since it happened to a well known celebrity and Lord knows we'll never hear the end of anything a celeb does.

Sort of like how the same people who whine about Playboy's "exploitation of women" are the first in line to see a Chippendales show?

You know, I think that that's half the reason why they don't like internet porn... they're in danger of learning that their own sex lives are pathetic.

There are many people that have no problem with "internet perversion" and still support smaller government and are against nanny states.

This seems really funny to me since I live around the area that station airs, but I never saw it because I was away....

I'm all for internet perversion, am anti-nanny-state, and don't care if the government is large or small as long as it's efficient and does what we put those bozos into office for.

No, these people really do want "smaller government" because that's what their political leaders tell them. What they don't tell them is what "smaller government" ends up meaning... it doesn't mean that they're going to cut out any top executive or legislative positions, it means that they're going to cut lower-level government positions... utilitarians, teachers, social workers, etc... gnawing at the bones rather than trimming the fat. It happened here in PR back when our current governor was elected... he was all like "we're gonna shrink the government!" and what'd he do? Cut almost 17000 civilian jobs. A lot of teachers lost their jobs... and this place is already hurting education-wise. When the GOP talking heads speak about "smaller government", they're talking about cutting out the things that they don't like... cutting jobs for social services, government-funded scientific researchers, stuff like that. They never say something like "we're going to clean up the mangled mess that is the DoD" or "look at all these wasteful defense contracts in foreign countries that are doing our people no good, let's get rid of them". And don't get me started on "job creation"... it's all about the womb police, never about "well shit, our country's infrastructure is thirty years behind the rest of the industrialized world, time to upgrade".

I think he put "smaller government" in quotes for a reason. I don't think he thinks they really want smaller government.

There isn't a major political party in existence that wants smaller government. Any party that's in power wants to play Santa Claus, and the only way they can do that is by increasing government spending.

I find it rather amusing that almost every instance of this happening, the footage is pornographic in nature. I don't want to start a conspiracy of some sort, but it just does seem a bit weird to me.

Either that or these are the only instances of it you hear about. I'm assuming it's likely this.

I assume it's because it's the traditional "shock" footage you put up when you want to cause a disturbance. Unless I'm reading your post wrong and you're just being silly.
