Ew. [Apr. 26th, 2006|10:00 pm]

Did anyone living in the Philadelphia area watch the 10:00PM news on Fox last night?

For those who didn't, they did a very odd report near the end of the program. It was about babies who were being potty trained shortly after birth.

You see... er..

They kept on showing naked babies and didn't do a good job with their censoring blur and at the end they showed close ups of babies squatting on the toilet and defecating.



W. T. F. Question Mark.

What type of parent lets their child's parts flail on the evening news?
What network news editorial staff puts this on the air?
What camera operator thinks, "Hm. This news story could really use a close-up of a 4 month old child pooing, and I'm just the person to take this shot!"

I do believe both instantdharma and I are scarred for life. If not scarred, we are very, very confused.

Thanks Chaz, this totally ruined my day and my MA thesis. Ugh.

Okay. For the record - it was tasteless and scary. But you didn't see poop or anything. Just for clarification.

It was still fuckin' gross.
I still feel like I was watching pedophile porn.
And I still want to die.

You can't judge PA by the actions of Fox. :D

I actually read something about that before and I find it very interesting... but not really "TV Worthy" interesting. More like "I wonder how soon I can potty-train my kids without having to do this" interesting.

I didn't have any problem with the content of the story. Just the particular footage they chose to use.

All I'm saying is some people have a fetish for little kid's junk, that why fox news showed the babies doing their business. Chaz, I think you already knew this, since you have a fetish for stealing other groups names.
