Spain fines TV network for airing ads criticizing gay demonstrations
July 27, 2010
The Spanish government has imposed a €100,000 fine on the Intereconomia television network for broadcasting ads that criticized homosexual demonstrators.
The ads included footage of grotesque public displays by participants in a “gay pride” parade, and asked the question: “Proud? Of what?” The government said the ads “attack the dignity” of homosexuals.
