Disney Peddling Porn?



A pro-family organization has leveled serious charges against The Walt Disney Company, claiming that the Mouse House has set up for itself a sordid side business: pornography.

According to the Florida Family Association (FFA), which has been monitoring television for 12 years, “Disney-owned [television] channels account for the overwhelming number of erotic and pornographic network programs” on air. Disney owns 37.5% of the A&E Television Networks, which in turn owns the A&E and History channels. Last December and February, A&E aired Inside the Playboy Mansion, which FFA said contained photographs and video showing full, uncensored views of female breasts and buttocks.

In addition, said FFA, Disney also owns almost 40% of the E! Entertainment Television channel, which hosts the largest number of sexually explicit programs of any advertiser-supported television network.

Besides the 10 hours of The Howard Stern Show aired every week, FFA said the network carries numerous other sexually explicit series, such as The Anna Nicole Show, Playboy Playmate specials, the True Hollywood Story series, and the Wild On series.

“Additionally, E! programming at night is predominantly sponsored by advertisements for Girls Gone Wild porn videos, Playboy videos, and several dial-a-porn companies,” FFA said in a press statement.

David Caton, executive director of FFA, said all this was in addition to the ribald offerings on the ABC network. One of the network's longest-running shows is the cop drama NYPD Blue, a prime-time trendsetter for nudity, profanity, and sex.

“Disney has refocused their business plan in recent years to shake off the wholesome, family entertainment image that once made them profitable,” Caton said. “Disney has gone so far, they are now without a doubt the dirtiest television [provider] around.”

Disney/ABC Promoting Homosexuality

In addition to its regular push of homosexuality on ABC and its other cable networks, ABC will be airing a new gay-themed sitcom this fall, It's All Relative. The series focuses on the marriage between Bobby and Liz, and the friction that arises from the clash between their two families. In Liz's case, her “parents” are two homosexual men.

It's All Relative will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, themselves homosexuals who have produced homosexual-themed programming for Disney on a number of occasions.
