It’s official: In order to watch cable news, ESPN, Disney or the History Channel, every family in America must now also pay for pornography on FX. Last week’s episode of ‘Sons of Anarchy’ opened with the most sexually explicit content we’ve ever seen on basic cable, content normally found on premium subscription networks like HBO or Showtime. Families should not be forced to underwrite pornography. Cable Choice is a solution whose time has come, and there could hardly be a better example of it than this. We call on Congress, the FCC and the Federal Courts to give cable consumers real choice when it comes to deciding which networks they actually want to purchase.The last time Sons of Anarchy got on the PTC’s bad side, it was due to a plot involving a school shooting. At that time, Sutter responded in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, stating “I would imagine these are not evil people, but they are just not very intuitive or intelligent individuals. It’s such a small and simple view of process. The fact that people want to be monitoring what my children watch is terrifying. Whenever that stuff crosses the line into censorship, it’s just scary … not just on a creative level but a personal level.” It’s been more than a year since the PTC expressed outrage over an episode of Sons. During that time, viewers have seen brutal murders committed with kitchen utensils, eyeballs gouged out, fingers chopped off, and gun battles that resulted in multiple deaths. Apparently the PTC was able to overlook those but decided to draw the line at naked, writhing bodies in the throes of passion.
