Second lady Lynne Cheney said Sunday that the government should step in when entertainment television crosses the line by broadcasting racy material during hours when children are watching.
"I think that's where government maybe does have a role, particularly when it comes to what happens on prime-time television," Cheney told "Fox News Sunday."Mrs. Cheney cited "surprises like the surprise advertisement in which one of the 'Desperate Housewives' stars dropped her towel," referring to the controversial "Monday Night Football" ad where Nicolette Sheridan propositions grid star Terrell Owens.
I haven't watched [the series]," Cheney said. "But the thing we have to do is protect our kids from this. It's one thing for adults to do - they've had a long time to form their values. But it's another thing for kids."She would also like to you to read her hot, steamy, sex-filled novel, Sisters, that she wrote. You know, instead of watching stuff like that on TV.
