Sex-Obsessed Conservative Talk Show Hosts (other than Bill O'Reilly)

Joe Scarborough lamented Thursday night that “you turn to MTV anytime, you turn to a lot of these channels that are directed towards the youth of America, and you are going to see sex, sex, sex. I don't watch MTV anymore because I can't see videos on there, because they are always these stupid real-life sex shows.”

But is it really MTV that is obsessed with sex? Or is it Joe Scarborough and his conservative cohorts at MSNBC?

On Thursday night, the word “sex” was uttered 30 times on Rita Cosby Live and Direct and a shocking 60 times on Scarborough Country. Rita Cosby went inside the Bunny Ranch brothel and was right on top of the lesbian NFL cheerleaders (so to speak). Joe Scarborough obsessed over internet child solicitation and pedophilia and topped it off with a feature on, what else, lesbian oral sex in a nightclub bathroom. Rita Cosby watched.

By contrast, the word “sex” was uttered two or less times on MSNBC’s more liberal programs:

Hardball with Chris Matthews: 0
Countdown with Keith Olbermann: 2
The Situation with Tucker Carlson: 1

So who is it that is bombarding our culture with sex? It is not the liberals this time. It is conservative talk show hosts who, in an effort to avoid disparaging Republican officials, show endless footage of a naked pedophile walking around a kitchen.

Because they care about moral values.

Maybe instead of GOP Gay Marriage Amendments we could have GOP National Climaxxx Day.

It is appropriate for the sexually repressed GOP that Climaxxx Day occurs only once per year.

Interesting ...

Sometimes focusing so much on fighting against something, i.e. dirty videos on MTV or BET, can make it that more appealing because of all the time and energy needed to study it.

Great article, I linked to it on my blog. Nancy Grace is pretty much Special Victims Unit while O'Reilly and Limbaugh's radio shows remind me of the creepy church youth leaders who warn about masturbation every Sunday.
