3 Minutes of Hardcore Gay Porn Interrupt Canadian Newscast

News

"overrun briefly by inappropriate video."

An Ontario TV station apologized to viewers Friday after they were treated to an eye-opening three minutes of hardcore gay pornography during a newscast.

"At about 9:30 our broadcast signal was overrun briefly by inappropriate video - pornography to be specific," a message posted on CHCH Television's website said.

"[W]e would like to apologize to our viewers. This was a problem that originated, not at CHCH, but at a cable company. Apparently some cable lines had been cut, and in the splicing back together some inappropriate content went to air," the message said.

The master control desk was forced to make "frantic efforts" to pull the explicit content off, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

News director Mike Katrycz said they're still waiting for a formal answer from the cable company about how the mistake happened.

KRDO-TV in Colorado had a similar situation last week when hardcore pornography aired during "Good Morning America."
