Blasted for Oral Sex

Kathy Griffin
was obscene and unhinged with Anderson Cooper on CNN's New Year's Eve Live ... so claims an angry Parents Television Council.

The Prez of the PTC tells TMZ ... Griffin "has shown increasing contempt for the audience ..." referring to her multiple attempts to offer Anderson a BJ just after the ball dropped in Times Square.

Tim Winter goes on ... "The onus is now on CNN.  Either the network has a policy that allows its on-air talent to fondle a co-anchor's genitals, or it has a policy that forbids such conduct."

Winter also says he's not buyin' the whole, "The-kids-in-bed" argument, because New Year's Eve is the night kids stay up.

The PTC needs to back off! IF ANY SMALL CHILD WAS UP AT MIDNIGHT ON NYE, THEN THE PARENTS ARE BAD PARENTS! NO ONE WHO IS TOO YOUNG TO VIEW PROGRAMS THAT INVOLVE KISSING AND ROMANTIC GESTURES SHOULD BE UP AT THAT HOUR ANYWAY! REALLY WHO IS TO BLAME? CNN OR THE STUPID PARENTS THAT LET THEIR SMALL CHILDREN WATCH LATE NIGHT TV WHERE THAT KIND OF PROGRAMMING IS PERMITTED!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure kids stayed up late, but I doubt they were watching CNN.

Kathy Griffin is a known commodity. Next year stick to the "New Year's Rockin' Eve" and leave Cooper and Griffin for grown-ups.

What do you expect when you are a B lister sliding down to a D lister, you will do most anything for attention... Maybe she should do porn, that seems to make women popular and in demand? If that's part of her new comedy act I'll be sitting front row... Just in case...

She's a disgusting mean spirited pig. Why does anyone over the age of 12 watch her?

Okay, I never have liked either one of those people and would never watch them on New Year's Eve. As for children watching it, WHY??? There is such a thing as a tv guide, you can find out who is hosting what and just not watch it PERIOD. Depending on the child, most of them don't really know or care what New Year's Eve is about anyway, and if they are small children, why would they be up in the first place?? I think it says more about this group that is complaining than it does about Kathy Griffin or Anderson Cooper.

This happened on CNN.... To say I need to monitor what my kids watch... I thought I was.. Again... It was CNN!!! I'm expecting it to be professional no matter who's on it... It was wrong and inappropriate.... Anyone who applauds what that tacky bitch does is just as tacky and classless as she is

This woman has crossed the line of beyond disgusting. She is not funny at all and if this is what it takes to be relevant, I am not buying it. Get a grip, Kathy!

I'm for Kathy in this battle. The PTC tries to dictate what the entire country watches on TV. If CNN does away with Kathy they had might as well not even have any NYE coverage because no one will be tuning in.

its ok to let kathy do her crap on live tv instead of cutting away to other cameras, but its not ok for CNN to tell the truth about sandy hook and oregon shooting hoaxes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qkbsXIWIPF8

Kathy Griffin is a disgusting pig. And isn't funny at all. That part is the bigger problem. A comedian who isn't funny really sucks.
