In what has to be one of the stupidest moves of all time, PBS has fired one of their talk show hosts because of a series of tapes she made in the past called Technical Virgin. The videos, which were a series of jokes about how women can remain virgins, are no more suggestive than the ones you might find on Mad TV. Yet, Melanie Martinez was fired from her job as host of The Good Night Show as a result.

The reason given for her firing?

"PBS Kids Sprout has determined that the dialogue in this video is inappropriate for her role as a preschool program host and may undermine her character's credibility with our audience," said Sandy Wax, network president.

The audience in question? 2 to 5 year-old kids.

Again, this is another example of people using their children to defend themselves against something they're afraid of. Poor Melanie was fired for another part of the conservative agenda.
