A TV television show is a feature-length, episode-long motion picture that’s produced and specifically released for television by or for a television network, rather than for theatrical presentation at movie theaters. Unlike a musical, a TV series features music and may have multiple characters, sometimes alternating between the characters of a musical and an extra character (the actors). Actors are normally hired to do stand-up or funny comedy; in movies, they usually act as a part of a team. TV series are usually filmed on location outside the studio or production facility.
In your query “Why are the images in question, hosted on a social networking site, do not portray child abuse?” You can answer this question in several ways. For example, you could say that such images do not depict child abuse due to the fact that the alleged victims are adults, and that they were probably meant to be humor. On the other hand, you could say that such images glamorize child abuse, which may also be an explanation. Nevertheless, if we examine both explanations, you will find that the actual question is: Why do the images in question, hosted on a social networking site, do not portray child abuse?
As I suggested earlier, the reason why the images in question do not portray child abuse is because they are not real. They are images created by humans, which can easily be filtered out by humans, and which can easily be altered or fabricated for the sole purpose of harming another human being. The same goes for images on YouTube. These sites routinely get millions of visitors each day. They are viewed by people all over the world, and many of them are perfectly sane, law-abiding citizens.
While it is true that the images and videos on such services are bound to get filtered out, that does not mean that they are not spreading. All this means is that there is something wrong with the way in which such media are surfacing. It has been found that some of the most popular video sharing websites have robust systems aimed at filtering out “bad” material. At the same time, most of these sites offer users the opportunity to post their own materials – creative materials included. This means that the end result is that anyone who wishes to view child pornography can do so, even though such material may not necessarily be “good” material.
In the final analysis, it becomes clear that this problem cannot be solved by watching TV programs in the privacy of one’s home. There are too many factors at work here. Those watching TV television have chosen to do so at a particular time. When these individuals do not wish to see offensive material, they will continue to do so, and those wishing to view such content will do so at another time.
The next question to answer is whether such material should be blocked altogether. That is to say, is it possible to prevent viewers from accessing sites with offensive content by physically preventing them from entering the site? If so, this is certainly a step in the right direction, as it shows that such sites are unacceptable; however, such a blocking method will never be entirely effective since we are talking about the Internet, where the servers of the sites are able to enter any server, both worldwide and within individual countries.
Such blocking methods will, ultimately, fail because of the nature of the Internet itself. People do not visit websites based solely on the appearance of a website. Rather, they look for information, which they will then seek out through other means. This is the very basis of Search Engines and why they have been used to effectively reduce the amount of offensive content that appears in searches. As long as such robust systems aimed at preventing child sex abuse material from surfacing on the Internet continue to exist, individuals will be able to find anything they want on the Internet-it is just a matter of using them. Thankfully, such systems are currently in place, and it is up to users to use them responsibly.
One solution to the problem of pornography websites appearing on TV is to have them screened on satellite or cable TV channels. As long as such programs are targeted towards a mainstream audience (i.e., typically those who watch the popular broadcast TV series), it would be very difficult for pornographers to successfully penetrate such television channels. If such a policy was put into effect, it would not only help decrease the amount of offensive materials being viewed, but would also provide a counterbalance against videos featuring violence, harassment, and other sexual content. With these kinds of movies reaching an all-time high in popularity, it would certainly not be surprising to see a similar policy adopted for other kinds of offensive materials posted on websites other than traditional broadcast TV programming.
