Viewers Expect Tom Brokaw, Get Hard-Core Porn

Don’t you hate it when you’re watching TV and you expect a health program hosted by Tom Brokaw and instead you get a “nature program.” And by nature program we mean porn. From Yahoo!:

The incident on KPPX-TV Monday night prompted a flood of calls to local news media outlets and cable provider Cox Communications, including one from Chandler resident Brenda Schodt, who said she was shocked to look up and see graphic sex acts on her television screen.

“Maybe five or 10 minutes into the show there was no volume,” Schodt said. “I thought it was the TV, but when I looked up, there were these images.”

Cox spokeswoman Andrea Katsenes said that the unexpected clips were a “source issue” with the broadcaster.

ION Television, which operates KPPX, called the problem “an act of human sabotage” at its station.

KPPX is a local Phoenix-area station. Whoops. Which is worse: Tom Brokaw in your porn or porn in your Tom Brokaw?—MEGHANN MARCO
