    Toronto's famed CityTV will be the <a href="http://cbc.ca/artsCanada/stories/nakednews240103">first television station</a> to air Naked News (NSFW).

    If you live anywhere in southern Ontario or have a Canadian satellite dish, tune in to City on Saturday nights to watch those news anchors get wiggly.

    Techie2000 The crowd would sing:

    So what is the premise for this? News disguised as porn? Or porn disguised as news?

    Neither. News that will interest many men and boys and perhaps start a new revolution in to the movement of awareness. :)

    No porn in it.

    OK that clinches it, the campaign (started 30 minutes ago) is over, unless I can relocate the capital of the USA to Canada.

    Hmmmm...

    ;)

    cdw Ahhhh...the good life.

    Did you really hear what they were saying?
    I was watching one of the free short versions they have on the website and couldn't help but crack up. It's like being in the bedroom with your husband who's reciting the days events as he's getting ready for bed.

    Actually in the morning I am in a hurry. I cant even watch it, I just see it in passing as I iron or whatever. I hear it in the shower.
    Nudity certainly has absolutely nothing to do with the news, and yes it does look a bit out of place.
    Well uh, uh, damn I wish it was still free.

    Tech support, nakednews and lots of wine

    Back when I was on front line tech support for "Major DSL ISP" (say "ding dong" ya'll), I got this call:

    Me: Thank you for calling *Major DSL ISP* How may I help you?
    Cust: Well hello there darlin'. My computer crashes whenever I go to this site to watch the news. Uhh ... could you hang on a minute? I'll be right back ...
    Me: Uhh ... sure ...
    (a couple minutes go by ... )
    Cust: OK ... had to get another glass of wine here. OK, so I go to this site and when I click on the news, my computer crashes.
    Me: Can you describe in detail what happens?
    Cust: Well, I click on the link and it everything freezes up. The mouse won't move, the keyboard won't work ... nothing works. (Leeetle bit of slur in his speech here, but that's cool)
    Me: OK, lets check out some of your settings ...
    (I found out what DSL modem he has, the OS, CPU and RAM installed. Settings are OK, nothing out of the ordinary. But while we are going through all this, he has me "hang on for a sec" several times while he refills his wine glass)
    Me: OK, Sir, it looks like everything is OK on your PC, let's try going to the site to see what's going on there.
    Cust: Ohhhkeeee ... can you look at it too?
    Me: What's is the site address?
    Cust: Ummm ... errr ... uhhh .. it's um, www.nakednews.com. It's really neat ...
    Me: Uhhh ....
    Cust: Are you on the site yet?
    Me: Uhh ... well, I can't go to that site due to company policy ... uhh, you know ......
    Cust: Oh well that sucks (goes for more wine)
    Cust: Well, let me tell you about it. (Launches into long-winded, very detailed description of what it's all about ... slurring really bad by now)
    Me: I see ... well, are you on the site now?
    Cust: Yeah ... I'm on the front page of it, there's the link to start the news where she takes it alllll off. (giggles)
    Me: OK, go ahead and click on the link, we'll see if your PC locks up again.
    *Click*
    Cust: Damn ... it did it again. I'm all froze up! Gotta reboot.Gonna go get some more wine while it's doing that. Now don't you run off anywhere, darlin'! (giggles some more)
    Cust: (back with more wine ... I counted 6 refills by this point) Ya know, you really should see this. Tell you what, take my phone number home with you and call me tomorrow and tell me what you think about it after you check it out, how 'bout that, darlin'?
    Me: I umm .. we're not allowed to contact customers that way. Only when you all call in.
    Cust: Well damn ... can you write me an email and tell me what you think?
    Me: Uhh, no sir, I'm pretty sure that's against policy.
    Cust: OK then ... well, I'm back up and running now. Connecting to the DSL now .... and nakednews.com is up and on the front page. (giggles) You gotta check this out, promise me you will look at this when you get home?
    Me: (stammer something unintelligible)
    Cust: OK, what we got here is two links to the nekkid news now. One says for 56K and the other says for broadband. (giggles) Hehe ... BROADband.
    Me: (Silent groan)
    Cust: When I click on the broadband link to go to the news is when I freeze up
    Me: Try the 56K link, see what happens
    Cust: OK ..... Wow! It's coming up (giggles) I mean .. uhh, it's working (more giggles) I mean the news is showing ... and boy is it showing! Oh, darlin'! You should see this! She's talking about what football teams won their games and she's unbuttoning her blouse. Now it's off. She's unzipping her skirt, and it's off! (breathing heavily now)
    Me: Uh ... OK, so everything's OK now?
    Cust: Ohhhh yeah! Heh heh ... she's down to nothing but her panties now ... (pant pant) (giggles)
    Me: OK, well, is there anything else I can do for you tonight? (Instantly regretting my words)
    Cust: Yes! There is!
    Me: (Cringe)
    Cust: Go home and check out this web site! You know they are supposed to get a nakednews with guys stripping down pretty soon. You should like that better than this ... or at least I would hope so! You don't go for girls do ya?
    Me: (choking ... praying this call isn't being monitored)
    Cust: Please tell me you will look at this site when you get home! And email me what you think about it, OK darlin'?
    Me: (thinking, ANYthing to get rid of this guy) OK, sir, I will do that. You have a nice night, and thank you for calling *Major DSL ISP*
    Cust: OK, darlin' ... night night! (I could just see him leering!)

    The call ends and the tech next to me asks, "Why is your face so red?"

    If he only knew ...
