Dead People vs bare backs and nipples

So why isn't there a outcry over seeing little kids washed out to see or train loads of dead bodies. Janet lets a nipple pop out and some housewife jumpes in some guys arms and the world is coming to a end. People demanding that tv networks protect the children from the bare backs of ladies. Yet not a word about dead people. Maybe its good for kides to see other children having their lives taken away by the force of god.

Oh I know why there is no outcry. I know its true name.

Everyone dies. Not everyone has sex.

Because we have issues with sex. We don't have many issues with death.

Also consider the context. If you watch the news, you know you might see bad stuff. If the Nipple had happened on NYPD Blue, there wouldn't have been much about it. If it had happened on SNL, it wouldn't have done much either. Now if you show the dead bodies, etc. as a clip during a Spongebob episode, you might have a different reaction.

Puritan views.

Lots of people die, but 'sex' is a dirty word.

Something like the Janet Jackson uproar happens because people (read: suburban housewives) don't want to be reminded that they are way down the list when it comes to being hot. Seeing dead bloated bodies actually makes some of the same people (read: suburban housewives) look good by comparison. Hence, no complaints.

I got halfway thru a long response when I realized that you are most likely a troll, so I deleted it

Hmmm. I wonder what sort of reaction if you combined the two.

That's just it they play or have played the thing at different times that caught me off guard. Like for example during a comercial break for a prime time show. A time when kids might be watching. The more I think about it the more it pisses me off. Its like the stupid banned on tv comercial where the lady gets hit by train. They played the thing at all hours at random. It freaked me out each time I saw it and gave me nightmares. True they didn't show the train hitting her but the cut was way to close.

Just a few days ago Channel 5 was like tune in at 10 to see stunning new footage then shows a clip of kid getting hit by a wave. This is just to effing much. Now we have mud slides and the flood in CA. I don't know how many times I've seen some guy fall into rushing water after a rescue attempt. Maybe he lived and they are just trying to screw me up even worst. Right not the media is on a death orgy. Anything showing death they play and glorify it to get ratings.

Now I have another example of commercials being played when kids would be watching. The Victoria Secret commercials that they play all the time is just as bad as the housewife commercial. I would say the housewife commercial is more tame even.

I highly doubt that kids are watching "Desperate Housewives" or "Jerry Springer".

Ah, now we cut to the heart of the matter. You're pissed because you wanted to see the lady get hit by a train...and they left you hanging.

Ummm, welcome to the the "Television Age". The nightly news broadcasts have been the original and ultimate "reality show" since the invention of broadcast TV. There is nothing new now... just more opportunities to take advantage of.

What time of day did the commercial air? What was the show? What was the channel? Let's talk a little about specifics.

I was just thinking I might have seen these things at late night hours. I'm really what time they were on. Probably getting upset over nothing. Wouldn' be the first time.
