**'Family Guy' is not worthy of an Award** The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has nominated the offensive cartoon "Family Guy" for an Emmy award as Outstanding Comedy Series. This disgusting program is far from Best Comedy.
Classic comedies that were rewarded with this honorable award should not be put in the same category as this filth that is in every episode of “Family Guy.”
The Academy has awarded an Emmy every year for Outstanding Comedy Series since 1952. What was once an honor with exceptional nominations that have unfortunately started to slip over the past few years has now hit rock bottom with this nomination.
It is absurd that Fox pays “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane $100 million a year to pour this garbage into homes through broadcast airwaves. He is being paid big bucks to poison your children’s minds.
This is harmful for adults as well. The content of this program is so explicit that I can’t even begin to describe it here. If you are not familiar with this show, take our word on this one.
There is nothing funny about this program or this nomination!
Please send a letter** and ask the Academy to pull their nomination of the “Family Guy” for Best Comedy of the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards. This perverted and sickening program does not deserve this nomination.
AVON** - OMM received a letter stating, “Avon holds no particular religious, political, or cultural stance as these are personal matters.”
Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr./CKE – CKE has refused to remove their recent ads. CKE’s public relations manager Jenna Petroff states that the ad’s reference to genitalia constitute “a creative approach” to advertising, and that the commercials “appeal to and amuse” their intended audience.
