Religious program interrupted by porn, QUESTION

I see reports along these lines pretty regularly...

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090411/...cast_gone_wild
PHILADELPHIA A Philadelphia cable network's early morning broadcast of a Good Friday service at the Vatican abruptly changed to something wildly different a 30-second "Girls Gone Wild" ad.

Comcast spokesman Jeff Alexander says the 2 a.m. Friday programming glitch was due to a required test of the Emergency Alert System. He says such tests are usually done in the overnight hours.

The test automatically tunes viewers to a preselected channel that would provide information in the event of an emergency. But during tests, the channel airs regular programming, which in this case included a paid advertisement for the racy videos.

Alexander says the problem affected the network's entire local area, but only one person called to complain.
My question is, why don't we hear about porn being interrupted by religious shows? Surely that would generate more complaints.

I'd hardly call a commercial for GGW 'porn.'

Utah is the number one state for per thousand people who buy online pornography (report here).

What's your point?

To be fair, if I moved anywhere else that number would drop. DRAMATICALLY.

They don't really have an alternative, though.

I actually think if you move, that number would increase dramatically. You're pulling them behind.
