Evil TV Network Takes Income From 11 Children

From Fox News:

Oxygen pulls plug on ‘All My Babies’ Mamas’

January 15, 2013

NEW YORK – Prolific procreator Shawty Lo is a no-go on his own show.

Oxygen Media has pulled the plug on "All My Babies’ Mamas," a reality special the network was developing about the Atlanta rap artist, who has fathered 11 children with 10 different mothers.

Speaking of expanding the welfare rolls…

But, still, why didn’t Mr. Lo think to use his children as a ‘human shield’? Maybe Shawty will be inspired by our President and hold a press conference and surrounds himself with his 11 children. How could any TV network take the food out of the mouths of 11 darling children?

"As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special," the network said, offering no further reason for curtailing the project.

It was a "special"? We thought it was a pilot.

The one-hour program would have featured Atlanta rap artist Shawty Lo, his children and their mothers. It was expected to air later this year on Oxygen, an NBCUniversal cable network owned by Comcast.

NBC. Say no more.

"All My Babies’ Mamas" got a hostile public reception after Oxygen announced it last month. At least one petition calling for Oxygen to shut it down has collected more than 37,000 signatures.

The Parents Television Council called the program’s concept "grotesquely irresponsible and exploitive" and pledged to contact advertisers of the show if it reached the air.

Previously, Oxygen denied charges that the show was meant to be "a stereotypical representation of everyday life for any one demographic or cross section of society," but rather would reveal "the complicated lives of one man, his children’s mamas and their army of children."

On Tuesday, Oxygen said it will "continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation."

Note that they said "continue." Is that really what Oxygen thought they were doing with ‘All My Babies’ Mamas’ — "driving the cultural conversation"? Not just driving our culture down the drain?

    Just because its glorified on TV doesn’t mean it will be imitated in real life.

    Then again, if kids don’t imitate TV then why did half the guys in my junior high where thier pants below their waists?
