NBC WINS 2004 “DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE AWARD”!

 

NBC wins the 2004 “Depraved Indifference Award” with its upcoming show “Wife Swap.”  NBC defends the show by saying that the name of the show does not really tell you what the show is about.  Do they think the average American is a fool?!  Whatever the show is about, THE NAME OF THE SHOW PROMOTES UNRIGHTEOUSNESS!

 

 

 

SURVEY RESULTS

January 11, 2004

 

 

Over 100,000 people have taken our instant survey (courtesy of “Instant Survey, Inc.”).  The survey results reveal the following opinions about popular entertainment:

 

We believe much of our popular entertainment is an ethical failure.

83%

We believe some of our popular entertainment is ethically weak.

13%

We believe most of our popular entertainment is decent enough.

4%

 

The people have spoken!  It is time for the entertainment industry to change its ways!

 

Our website rates television programs, broadcasters, movies, musical artists, television commercials, etc. in terms of the ethical nature of their content.  Our standard is the Family Standard.  In the United States, it is univerally recognized that the basis for the Family Standard is the Bible.  We are just beginning to develop our Internet presence.

 

 

 

 

 

Rating System

 

We will only be including entertainment that is not totally offensive on this page.  Movie entertainment is only EFTV (“Edited For Television”) entertainment unless otherwise noted.  Non-EFTV versions of movie entertainment can contain offensive content, which is not found in EFTV versions of the same movie entertainment.  Only a rating method of “c” (see below) guarantees perfect adherence to our rating system.  It is up to you to be sure that any entertainment is suitable for children.  An entertainment’s rating may change if additional information about that entertainment is obtained.  Here is our current rating system:
