Section C: (Community Access Producer Responsibilities), paragraph five.
The Community Access Producer must adhere to all of the Community Access rules and guidelines stated herein and is responsible for ensuring that the program and the individuals involved in the production adhere to the rules and policies as set forth in this document.
Section E: Program Content: numbers 3-5.
3. No libelous, slanderous or illegal material.
4. No obscene material, sexually explicit conduct, or material soliciting or promoting unlawful conduct.
5. No material which incites violent or harmful acts on other persons.
Page 20: Definition of Obscene or indecent material.
Any material in a program and/or presentation which would subject the producers, suppliers thereof and/or the company to prosecution or penalty under local, state, or federal law for the presentation of obscene or indecent material.
Section K: Violations, penalties, and appeals.
In order to effectively enforce all Community Rules, a penalty system for violations has been established. Violations of the rules will result in restrictions being imposed on Community Access producers who are responsible for the actions of their talent and crew members. Comcast will issue warnings and/or suspensions for either major or minor violations, and will do so verbally and/or in writing stating the nature of the violation and the penalty imposed.
1. Major violations of the rules governing Community Access will result in an immediate 90-day suspension of use of the Community Access facilities.
Since Tom Bennett has repeated violated the rules and guidelines of Comcast, the only remedy for this situation is to immediately terminate the contracts of Carol and Tom Bennett, cancel the BigT's Talk & Variety show, and ban all individuals associated with the show from the studios.
After you watch the footage, please add you name to the petition list and help place pressure on Comcast to do their job, enforce their own rules, put an end to people who place indecent, profane, racist language (as well as the promotion of unlawful conduct) on the public airwaves.
Local access is the PUBLIC'S channel so let Comcast know that the public has had enough of BigT's nonsense.
