Dirty Dozen List 2013 - Lodgenet header

The Problem

[Original 2013 description]

Why is Lodgenet on the Dirty Dozen List?

This is the company that provides most of the in-room TV pornography to major hotels and motels. Despite the federal and many state laws, which prohibit obscene materials on cable and satellite TV, LodgetNet has made untold millions by providing hardcore pornography to its customers. Children have also been exposed to this material.

Federal obscenity laws, which the U.S. Department of Justice refuses to currently enforce, prohibit distribution of hardcore, obscene pornography on the Internet, on cable/satellite or hotel/motel TV and in sexually oriented businesses and other retail shops. 18 U.S.C. 1468 Distribution of obscene matter by cable or satellite TV
