TV Station Telecasts Porn Instead of Good Morning

The irony is that as soon as the Porn was taken off the air,it was replaced by Religious programme.!

Viewers in Colorado got an eyeful when a local TV station accidentally broadcast hard-core porn in place of “Good Morning America,” which was scheduled to air.

The X-rated footage, which was shown in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, Colo., aired for only a few seconds Thursday morning and was quickly replaced by religious programming.

It took KRDO News Channel 13 nearly three hours to solve the glitch, which the station said affected only Comcast customers.

Viewers sounded off on KRDO’s Facebook page, several angry that their young children had gotten a glimpse of the inappropriate programming.

“My 7-year-old was watching porn instead of your news,” wrote Megan Ortiz.

“I’ve been on the phone already this morning after the porn that was broadcast while my daughter was eating breakfast!,” wrote Karrie Kuklish. “I’m outraged!!! Sick!”

KRDO posted a statement on its Facebook page around 6 a.m. Thursday, stating that it was working on the problem, which it called “an issue with Comcast.”

Comcast later released a statement of apology, posted on KRDO’s website.

“The issue was a result of human error, which has been resolved, and preventative measures have been taken to avoid this from happening again in the future,” Comcast spokeswoman Cindy Parsons said.

It’s not the first time the TV station has made headlines for an on-air blunder. In March, a pre-taped segment of a KRDO weather reporter cursing and storming off the set accidentally aired.
