TV channel accidentally plays 13-second porn video during weather report in the US

In shocking news, viewers were totally taken aback while watching a weather forecast report in Washington, US. It was at that time when a local news channel mistakenly played a pornographic clip. It is to be noted that KREM, a local CBS-affiliated news outlet that is based in Spokane, Washington unknowingly telecasted the 13-second porn video during their 6 pm newscast.

The incident happened when Meteorologist Michelle Boss was briefing the weather update when the porn clip started playing over her shoulder. Even she was left puzzled over the clip as she nor her co-anchor were not aware of the video clip.

Meanwhile, the news anchors had to continue their report as the adult video played out in the background before finally cutting away to more weather footage.

Meanwhile, KREM conveyed their sincere apologies for showing the “inappropriate” video during their 11 pm broadcast, reports Adweek. “Those of us here at KREM 2 want to apologise for something that happened in our 6 pm newscast tonight,” said the station.

“An inappropriate video aired in the first part of the show. We are diligently working to make sure something like this doesn’t happen again.”

In the wake of the broadcast, it was opened up that the channel has broken broadcast rules. Parents Television and Media Council (PTC) also wrote a letter calling for action to the channel. “It is illegal to air indecent material between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. over the publicly-owned airwaves.

As a licensee of the broadcast spectrum, a violation of the congressionally-mandated and FCC-enforced indecency law can warrant financial sanctions up to $325,000 per incident. The FCC has levied fines for similar such violations as the one KREM appears to have committed,” the letter by PTC President Tim Winter read.

He went on to doubt that the clip was played by accident and questioned why is it always inappropriate content that is played ‘by mistake’. “Let there be no suggestion that the airing of the pornographic content might have been an “accident” or a “mistake.”

Someone with the wherewithal to pass that content through the control room did so intentionally. If it were not aired by someone’s design, why is it always porn that gets aired “by accident” instead of innocuous content?” Winter said.
