NBC stations targeted over ‘Playboy’
June 30, 2011
“Today, we begin an effort to contact every NBC affiliate across the country, as well as the top NBC executives, with a message about NBC’s fall series, ‘The Playboy Club,’?” said Patrick Trueman, president of Morality in Media. “That message is this: Sexual exploitation is to be condemned, not programmed on network TV.”
The crux of Trueman’s objection to the series is that NBC has no business associating with a company that profits from the sales of porn. Trueman called on local groups he characterized as numbering “in the hundreds of thousands” through his org’s War on Illegal Pornography campaign to send protest emails to NBC through ClosetheClubonNBC.com.
