Christian Groups Want Comcast to Reveal Its Porn Revenues

from www.thehill.com – The Parents Television Council (PTC) and a handful of Christian groups have called on Comcast to disclose the amount of revenue it brings in from pornographic and adult entertainment programming before it merges with NBC Universal (NBCU).

The groups, which include James Dobson’s organization Focus on the Family, want the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to consider the company’s porn revenues when judging if the merger is in the public interest, they wrote in a filing last week about the merger.

The U.S. Communications Act allows the FCC to use a “public interest” standard to evaluate the transfer of broadcast licenses.

“Comcast is one of the most far-reaching distributors of pornography in the communities it serves, raising serious questions about whether the company meets the character and public interest obligations required,” said PTC President Tim Winter [pictured].

The criticism about the merger generally has centered on competition and media diversity issues, placing the groups’ complaint outside the main concerns.

The company sought to gain ground on media diversity complaints earlier this month by outlining new commitments, such as a promise to spend at least $7 million more on advertising in minority-owned media next year.

The merger is also under review at the Justice Department.

The Hill has asked Comcast for comment on PTC’s concerns; updates to come.
