Parents Television Council Loves TBN, Is Full of It

Tomorrow, those boob tube rubes known as the Parents Television Council will impart its Entertainment Seal of Approval™ (their trademark, not our lame irony) on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. "We commend the TBN Networks for upholding the positive values that families hold dear," states a PTC press release. "Our culture seems to grow ever more resistant to what is best for the family and this includes many broadcast and cable networks. The TBN networks stand out for their excellent programming that the entire family can watch and enjoy together." The release goes on to claim TBN viewers "can be assured they'll be watching programs that are devoid of inappropriate and offensive messages." Guess that means the snake charmers who fill the TBN airwaves and remain the subject of an IRS probe qualify as family programming for the PTC, eh?
