LETTER: TV program shouldn’t be on

There is a program on the Discovery Channel on Sunday night that should be banned. It is called “Naked and Afraid,”

 Our TV media morals have slipped so much in the past several years, but to air a program of naked people should be offensive to any parent, grandparent, or responsible adult. The old standard of “social redeeming value” has long been pushed to the limit.

True, they have blurred the private parts, but young people still know what is being shown. I cannot believe the Discovery Channel has stooped to this form of entertainment. I hope enough people agree with me to stop this before it airs. If it is not stopped, please let the sponsors know what you think of them if they continue to sponsor this type of entertainment.

Decency has to start somewhere so start it with this program and take control of modesty again on our air waves. The FCC has no control on what is shown on cable channels, so they cannot help. Do your part now to stop this filth.
