    A newscast on a local television station in Hamilton, Ontario was interrupted yesterday by three minutes of hardcore gay pornography, which has drawn equal amounts of humour and outrage across social networks.

    The incident occurred around 9.30 in the morning, local time, on the local CHCH television station, causing not inconsiderable embarrassment for the news director, according to the original report by The Hollywood Reporter.

    The station was quick to disown responsibility, and said that it was a repair job gone awry, thanks to the work undertaken by a local cable company. Although CHCH attempted to recast their programme, they could not do so for roughly three minutes. Mike Katrycz, vice-precident of CHCH News, said: “In the splicing together, unfortunately, some inappropriate content went [on] air.”

    He added: We discovered through quick investigation that it was not (our station), it was one of the cable companies that had patched it… There was nothing wrong with the transmission from (us)..it was a problem at one of the cable companies that was beyond our control.”

    He was very apologetic about the incident, and admitted that the hardcore porn also reached people in the capital, Ottawa, through a repeat transmitter belonging to CHCH. Several apologies both on-air, and online, followed.

    Mr Katrycz said in a statement: “This was in no way CHCH’s doing. We didn’t provide or supply that content, it suddenly appeared on cable and satellite distribution, not on our actual air.”

    Perhaps the most irony-tinged comment came from one Anthony Urciuoli, who wrote on Twitter: “Thinking about filing a lawsuit with [sic] #CHCH for making me question my sexuality.”

    A good way to motivate people to watch the news.

    *yawn* Visited Vancouver last year for a gay event. Retired to the hotel for the evening...

    Ok, "Watchmen" is on. Big blue guy standing there naked and unedited in all his glory.

    HBO? Nope. Canada's Broadcast System...

    I hope it was some hot leather muscle daddy...screwing a sexy young twink, who is tied up on a sling and in handcuffs.

    If gay porn is going to go public, at least give them the good stuff.

    The only crime would have been if the broadcast was of the painful first 3 minutes of any porn where they attempt to cobble together plausible, horrifically acted plot for why the cable repairman and the pizza boy start fucking.

    This is hilarious! I would die laughing and probably spit out my coffee in the morning if something happened on our local news like this. So much better then listening to flaky and fake news news reporters reporting on a tragic news story and then acting like stepford wives with fake smiles about the weather or some gossip Hollywood story. UGH!

    From my early porn viewing years, until I was old enough to have my own place and had to hire one, I thought all plumbers were gay.

    Here's the apology. I don't know how to make it viewable from RJ, so hopefully someone can fix that/tell me how!

    Absolutely nothing to do with this, but not worthy of a separate thread:

    Is there an industry out there for gay SOFT porn? Like the stuff they put on Showtime/Cinemax at 2 AM for hetero WOMEN people, with convoluted movie "plots", that doesn't require pay-per-view.

    No links necessary, I just wanted to know if such a thing exists or even makes sense.

    That's the only part I like. I want to see how they are going to get the two dudes together. 15 minutes of fucking is boring.

    CHCH's vice-president of news Mike Katrycz"It was out of our hands," he said, noting that viewers with certain cable companies may have been unaffected."


    there's your answer...

    On my first trip to Quebec in the mid 80's in high school, I got to the hotel room about 5 PM that afternoon and turned on the TV, set to some local channel. The FIRST thing I ever saw on Canadian television was an adult store ad: a woman smiling, winking, and shimmying with a bathrobe on.

    As the male voiceover describes the store's wares (in English and en Francais) and concludes with its location, the lady yanks open her robe -- totally naked, ta-tas, vastly furry bush and all. Whatever TV show was on ("Murder She Wrote") resumed immediately thereafter.

    I was like, "These some uninhibited freaks up here!" I was dumbfounded by the (female) nudity that randomly showed up on a free TV channel. My roommates waddled in seconds later. Still slack-jawed, I tried explaining what I witnessed, only to endure heaps of ridicule:

    "Sounds like a mirage to me!"

    "Gets out of the country, gets off the bus, and the first thing he does is look for naked girls..."

    "Weren't you told not to drink the water?"

    "Yo, you might wanna keep an eye on Angela Lansbury... she might flash you!"

    As the other kids played cards and swilled beer all night in the hotel room, I spent the entirety of the time glued to the TV screen like the RCA dog with the Victrola, hoping in vain to see something similar again. Never saw the ad or anything like that for the rest of the trip. I left with the perception, though, that Canadians (or at least Les Habituees) didn't freakout about issues of "decency" on TV the way us guys south of the border do. At least not for a bare naked lady or two.
