Washington DC television station is showing breast exams on TV:
The two segments include clinical demonstrations of self-exams, and the breasts of the two volunteers are not blurred. They were to air during the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts Thursday and Friday.

This is during 'sweeps week'- so Pit, is this for ratings or because they want to provide an important service to women?

It's called 'baring it all', but it's only bewbs. That's hardly 'all'.

BREASTS ARE THE DEEEEEVIL!!! /religious nutjobs going wacko over nudity on TV

but seriously, everyone has seen breasts before. You we're sucking on them the moment you came to life, I don't see why it's such a big deal to show them
#6
And anyone cares...why?

Are they really still worried about kids watching cable TV and seeing a tit accidentally slip?

Do adults still not understand that kids know how to acquire porn on the internet easily?
#8
Also, how long before there's an instructional video for men on how to properly check for testicular cancer?
Or even prostate?
#9
Obviously the station is going to say it's for the education of their viewers, so they can get higher ratings. Nobody would confess to doing something like unblurring tits just for ratings.

The people that are appalled by mild nudity are idiots as are people that would tune in to a serious programme to see boobs. It's not difficult, look them up on the internet and stop wasting our time.

At the end of Year 12 (final year of high school in Australia) the boys were made to watch a video on how to check for testicular cancer; the girls made to watch a video on how to check for breast cancer. It was a hilarious afternoon, but it did raise the issue of 1 in 3 guys having testicular cancer, which was pretty scary.

Don't they have things like that on the program 'Embarassing Illnesses'? That's usually on at 8 or 9 and they don't blur anything.

It sounds like a ratings stunt disguised as a public service announcement. You know a ton of people will tune in for boobs, and it only makes it more known that boobs will be on TV because of news articles like this.

My question is, is this allowed? I know anything broadcast over public airwaves cannot contain sexual nudity until after 10 or 11pm, I'm not sure about this kind of thing though. Maybe we'll learn after someone complains to the FCC.

Nothing wrong with that

The testicle cancer self-check might get some resistance though.

Because a bunch of idiots think anything to do with nudity is instantly bad and will turn kids into rapist psycho murderers.

There's no sexual nature in a breast exam thus I doubt it would be considered sexual nudity. It's just plain nudity.

And I acknowledged that, my question is all nudity banned from broadcast television before 10pm? Everything that isn't broadcast (public airwaves) is at the discretion of the respective TV station's company. Comedy Central could put boobs and "inappropriate language" on all day, every day, but they don't because of their own policies.

No one would confess to it, but that doesn't mean thats not why they are doing it. But I don't care why they are doing it, its boobs.

I put 'lol boobs' because I reckon it provides both really. You can't show people how to examine their breasts if you censor all teh bewbies.

What are you talking about, I thought boobs were mysterious blurry things until I saw a pair for myself. Perfectly normal.

Well, they're also basic cable, so parents would eat them alive, and advertisers would pull out faster than a guy with a broken condom. FX can do it because they're awesome, though.

It didnt.

I was off school a few weeks ago and witnessed a man getting a testicular check live on This Morning, ITV. This was on at like 10.30 in the morning. I was not watching any sort of pornographic film either.

Unless said breasts were being smothered in unnecessary quantities of lotion and rubbed against the camera, I doubt it was for ratings.
