June 19, 1988

On May 27 we turned on the TV at 9:45 p.m. with the intention of watching Channel 11's 10 p.m. news. We were shocked by what we saw: A man was handcuffing a woman to a bed. He strapped her down and raped her. At the same time he was smothering her with a pillow. Next, he removed the pillow and we saw her lifeless face. This was a scene from the 8 p.m. movie, "The Clairvoyant." It is unbelievable that this would be shown on commercial TV, especially at 8 p.m. If we were upset and disgusted by this film, just imagine the effect on children. From now on, we are boycotting Channel 11. And, by the way, where are the censors when you need them?
