Message:In recent weeks WZZM-13 featured a segment on polyamory - making it appear as though the lifestyle of adultery, wife-swapping, and bisexuality is an exciting adventure and one that would be beneficial to children. Now you have highlighted swingers. These salacious topics are not in the least newsworthy. You do a great disservice to our communities and to the families who innocently tuned in during the evening news only to have their children exposed to such perverse topics. In addition, you allowed false and deadly misinformation to be presented as fact in regards to sexually transmitted diseases. All STDs carry physical and emotional consequences - such as HPV which is a leading cause of cervical cancer. Yet this segment told your viewers that only two forms of STDs are concerning. Also, a study done in the Netherlands that compared the medical records of self reported swingers to that of the general population found that STD prevalence was among the highest in this group, yet your report portrayed this deviant lifestyle as no more risky than any dating relationship. You are causing great damage to your credibility as a legitimate news organization as you promote behaviors that if followed by others will lead to further deviancy, confusion, and heartbreak. I strongly urge you to return to responsible journalism instead of using your news time to shock and degrade. I look forward to your response.
