Christian Groups Want To Know How Much Comcast Makes From Porn

As the government continues to pretend that it cares what anyone thinks about Comcast’s merger with NBC Universal, a coalition of Christian media watchdog groups are asking the cable giant to publicly divulge how much money it makes from porn channels and pay-per-view.

The coalition, which also includes the supposedly non-religious Parents Television Council and the always level-headed Focus on the Family, have asked the FCC to consider Comcast’s xxx-rated income when evaluating whether or not the merger is in the public interest.

Says the president of the PTC, whose kids certainly don’t have anything hidden under their mattresses:

Comcast is one of the most far-reaching distributors of pornography in the communities it serves, raising serious questions about whether the company meets the character and public interest obligations required.

Of course, Consumerist’s parent company Kabletown — which is certainly not Comcast — openly advertises its adults-only programming, including Deadliest Catch: Bikini Model Edition and Foreign Films With Cleverly Translated Porn Titles.
