Colbert smacks Fox, CBS

with one comment

After a long wait (and some frustrating customer service experience with Foxtel, worth recounting later), we finally have cable TV at home. The big advantage is that we can now resume watching The Daily Show and The Colbert Report on the The Comedy Channel here (yes I know, I should be geeky enough to torrent the shows, but I like to watch them on TV).

The shows are delayed by a day here, so I only just saw Colbert’s smack down of the bizarre decision by Fox News and CBS not to air the following ad for Trojan condoms, apparently because the commercial does not promote “health-related” uses of condoms over “pregnancy prevention”!

Here is the original ad:

Its bad enough when the government assumes the role of a moral guardian, but private TV channels trying to do so is rank hypocrisy.
Anyway, Colbert gives it the treatment it deserves. Here is the link. “You can’t use sex to sell sex !” Priceless.
