ALERT: Digg Bans Video Seen on Fox News, and YouTube Labels it 18+

Reported by Melanie - November 15, 2007 -

Earlier today (November 15, 2007), Brave News Films (BNF) debuted FoxNewsPorn.com. Video displayed there is entirely, entirely, footage from the Fox News Channel. Just hours ago, Digg banned that domain for carrying "adult content." Additionally, YouTube flagged FoxNewsPorn.com as 18+. It essentially checks your I.D. before you can watch it.

Interestingly -- and this is big -- Digg did a deal with the Wall Street Journal yesterday -- Rupert Murdoch's new toy that he'll use to toy with what we know -- and there have been rumors that Digg hopes to be acquired by News Corp. -- as if owning Fox News, MySpace, DirecTV, HarperCollins, the Wall Street Journal, and a slew of other outlets isn't enough for Rupert.

So, Fox's "news" content is too hot for Digg? YouTube considers it 18+? Join the protest here, here, and here.

The time has come for Fox to run a continuous disclaimer along the bottom of its screen that warns that its content is adult-only!
