NBC (Put a Check by Your Answer) ____ Caves ____ Comes to Its Senses

Filed under: Business Moves,Consumer Outrage — Tom @ 7:51 am

Madonna’s mock crucifixion won’t be shown:

Concert footage of Madonna suspended from a giant cross is to be cut from a US television broadcast.
NBC said the mock crucifixion, staged during the song Live to Tell on the star’s recent Confessions tour, would be cut from next month’s transmission.

US and European church groups have condemned the mock crucifixion.

Don Wildmon and his American Family Association are, understandably, claiming victory.

The fact that NBC is in a serious enough financial situation that it felt the need to lay off 700 employees must have also contributed to the network deciding against pushing the envelope this one time.
