Kathy Griffin

Blasted for Oral Sex

Antics On CNN

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.

I hope it was worth it because if I know CNN - and I think I do - Kathy's annual hosting gig is over.

All ten members of the PTC should get a life. You give yourselves a name and act like you speak for many, when you dont. Get a sense of humor, too!,

I'm a fan of both Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin and enjoy their New Year's Eve show. However, the BJ joke was lame and went on far too long. It may have been funny as a one-shot joke.

CNN had been advertising that Anderson and Kathy would be doing the NYE countdown for ANOTHER YEAR. If you don't want your kids to have access to that kind of humor, whether you think it's funny or not, then don't let them watch, take the tv's of their bedrooms because there is a lot worse on earlier than that every night. Be parents and take responsibility for how your kids are raised instead of using a television as a babysitter for christ sakes.

Cut me a break.. this is exactly what Kathy Griffin does and everyone knows this and this is why CNN has her back EVERY year. Don't let your kids watch her when you know this is what she does.

1. Kathy is a punk a$$ b*tch who can only be funny when resorting to shock value, and even then she's only funny to those with IQ levels of 1... and 2. Yes, kids do stay up to see the ball drop since school age kids don't have school on the 1st. My first memory of the new year was when I was 4 years old and my grandma would babysit us kids and have us go outside and bang pots and pans at midnight and yell "Get out old year, come in new year"! Then it was off to bed.

I thought it was stupid when I watched the show, but now that the PTC is having a fit over it I really hope Kathy does it again next year just to piss them off even more!

This headline is too funny. Are you kidding me??? Isn't that the very reason why they have Kathy co-host New Years Eve with Anderson every year for the past 4 years. And kathy Griffin lives to foment controversy. These kinds of reaction by the moral majority is her bread and butter. She will make lots of money from this brouhaha at her concerts.
