If we could imagine the inside of Comcast’s headquarters, I am guessing it would look a little something like Barry White’s bedroom, with shag carpets, low lighting, velvet walls and one of his silky love songs playing softly in the background. While that sounds great for “the love walrus,” we’re assuming parents wouldn’t want their kids hanging around that environment.
Why would we expect Comcast’s headquarters to look like a “love dungeon?” It might have something to do with the amount of money they make selling pornography every year, and they are not the only cable or satellite provider racking in the X-rated dollars.
In fact companies like Porncast…I mean Comcast have so much porn it seems they can’t even keep it off regular programming. For example, the small mix up during Super Bowl XLIII, where Arizona fans were subjected to 30 seconds of porn instead of their home team in the final seconds of the game, is disgusting. But don’t worry Comcast made it up to their customers as they always do with $10 off their next cable bill coupon. Even worse, they previously made the same “mistake” twice during children’s programming.
Comcast like many others, does not disclose how much they make every year from their adult only sales. It is expected to be an exorbitant amount, considering their cut of sales is estimated at 95 percent.
In this case over-the-air television really is free, free of porn that is. Protected by FCC laws, broadcasters are held to stricter standards, where porn is not just a click away. Broadcasters need to go through a character check when applying for their licenses, since airwaves are public. So next time your children are looking for something to watch, you won’t be afraid if they are using an over-the-air television antenna, because programs are safe and “mistakes” won’t happen.
