Morality in Media announces the 2014 Dirty Dozen List, a compilation of the leading facilitators of pornography in America.
The 2014 Dirty Dozen List highlights offenders with an explanation of how they contribute to a culture of sexual exploitation. The campaign provides actions the public can take to persuade these individuals and organizations to change their policies and practices. These include calls and letters to headquarters, and social media interaction.
“Once again Attorney General Eric Holder tops our Dirty Dozen List for his support of pornographers over children and families,” said Patrick A. Trueman, President of Morality in Media. “As the pandemic of harm from pornography grows, Holder gives criminal pornographers the green light to proceed by stopping all enforcement of federal obscenity laws.”
Among others, the latest List includes the social networking site Tumblr for its embrace of pornographic offerings, PlayStation for it’s live streamed pornography and sexually violent games, and Verizon for its FIOS TV porn offerings including many with child or teen themes, sexual slavery plots, and racial overtones.
Those companies from the 2013 List, which have been excluded from the current List, have not necessarily ceased profiting from pornography but made improvements. They included the Pentagon for halting sales of porn in the Army and Air Force exchanges, and Comcast for improving parental controls.
“These Dirty Dozen companies profit daily from the sexual exploitation of others and our campaign against them will not stop until their exploitation stops. Many of them may be in violation of current, enforceable U.S. obscenity laws that prohibit the distribution of obscene or hardcore pornography,” said Dawn Hawkins, Morality in Media’s executive director.
