Some North Carolina toddlers whose parents subscribe to Time Warner Cable television got a surprise recently when they tuned in to the Kids On Demand Preschool channels. Instead of promos for SpongeBob SquarePants, they saw nude women from the Playboy Channel dishing dirt about sex.

The Raleigh-Durham Time Warner official interviewed by WRAL TV apologized, abashed that not only did porn appear for about two hours on the kid's channel, but that its technicians took a good portion of that time to fix the problem. And worse, the problem had happened before and the company was confident it had put safeguards in place. Apparently, they still aren't practicing safe broadcasting.
