7-Eleven targeted for selling ‘Simpsons porn’

Published

on

A conservative pro-family group is slamming 7-Eleven for choosing to stock the November issue of Playboy, which will feature cartoon character Marge Simpson on the cover.

“Most American dads know the dangers that porn represents to young males,” American Family Association Special Projects Director Randy Sharp said in a press release. “It’s irresponsible of 7-Eleven to display porn in front of boys who pop into 7-11s for a hot dog or a Slurpee.”

The Telegraph recently reported, “Despite being on the front cover, Marge will not be totally bare, with the magazine only featuring ‘implied nudity.'”

“The move is a sign of changes to come from new CEO Scott Flanders, a former Freedom Communications Inc. CEO who was hired June 1 to succeed Christie Hefner to lead Chicago-based Playboy Enterprises Inc.,” The Chicago Sun-Times reported.

The Marge Simpson centerfold is “obviously somewhat tongue-in-cheek,” Flanders said in an interview Thursday. “It had never been done, and we thought it would be kind of hip, cool and unusual.”

The idea is to attract readers in their 20s — an appealing demographic compared with the average Playboy reader’s age of 35, Flanders said.

A TMZ blogger quipped, “This is the closest you’ll ever get to finding out if the carpet really does match the blue drapes.”

AFA’s Sharp added in the press release, “The cover will create the kind of curiosity that can easily lead [children] into an addictive porn habit. This is not what American families want to see in their neighborhood convenience store.”

The press release also quotes Monica Cole, Director of AFA’s OneMillionMoms.com, “A lot of moms are going to shop somewhere else if 7-Eleven doesn’t do the right thing and refuse to stock this magazine.”

Published

on

On Thursday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," anchor Wolf Blitzer challenged Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff Marc Short to justify the administration's stonewalling of the impeachment inquiry.

"Wolf, the reality is that the last three years, they've been trying to overturn the will of the American people. They're trying to take away the votes of the American people," said Short. "This whole impeachment has been a sham. What they've tried to prove there is no proof of ... I think it sets a dangerous precedent."

"Here's what I don't understand," said Blitzer. "If the president has nothing to hide, it was a perfect phone call with the president of Ukraine, why not cooperate, provide the documents, why not let individuals go before the committees and testify?"
