Enticing Fruit

From the AP via Salon.com:

The monitors at the Parents Television Council have been busy again. The group has just released the results of a study in which it closely surveyed one week of programming on MTV — “Spring Break” week, to be precise — and counted 3,056 flashes of nudity or sexual situations and 2,881 verbal references to sex. “MTV has clearly chosen to cater to the lowest common denominator, to offer the cheapest form of programming to entice young boys … dangling forbidden fruit before their eyes,” the group’s president, Brent Bozell, commented. Among the content in question: an episode of “One Bad Trip” featuring a “human sundae competition” in which men licked whipped cream and ate cherries off women’s bodies.

Okay, Brent Bozell has always struck me as one of those guys who’s a little too interested in “dangling forbidden fruit before [young boys] eyes.” He’s just creepy.
