Antiques Roadshow Erodes Family Values
Famous centerfold images of Marilyn Monroe and pictures of nude women painted on World War II planes are being screened (digitally blurred) by PBS’s Antiques Roadshow, and editors obscured the image of a 50-year old nude lithography.
Wonkette has a better take:
Hey, maybe PBS is more of a liberal threat than we realized. According to TV Watch, a new network-funded FCC watchdog group, Antiques Roadshow is screening out "pictures of nude women painted on World War II planes" and other titillating heirlooms to avoid potential indecency fines. Which, admittedly, seems sort of okay in this instance, because a lot of kids watch that show.
