FOX-News Flash: No Dudes Kissing (or Flashing) on FOX-News

“Fox had some other less obvious rules about what we couldn't show on air.

”'You can't use tape of the Twin Towers going down,' Marybeth told me. 'The bosses think it upsets people.' ...

“Another rule: If we were producing tape of same-sex weddings to illustrate a gay marriage segment, we had to cut away before the couple kissed.

”'We showed two guys kissing once and people at home completely freaked out,' Marybeth explained. 'Hundreds of calls to the switchboard, thousands of angry e-mails.'"
