Popular Turkish Show fined for "immorality"

The popular Kanal D show “Ben Bilmem Eşim Bilir” (I Don't Know, My Partner Knows) was fined by Turkey’s media watchdog.

 

Channel was obliged to pay 410,000 Turkish Liras for "immorality," after it showed husbands dancing with other women while their wives looked on.

The Radio and Television Supreme Council (RTÜK) ruling said the scene that was screened “encouraged men to cheat on their wives and harm family tranquility.” It added that the show “degraded women to the level of a sexual object.”
