“Well, because they had yanked other things that were less offensive, I didn’t take it quite as personally,” Fuller said. But he did equate KSL‘s move to something one might see in the old Soviet Union.
He did, however, compare Channel 5 to Pravda, the Russian newspaper that, in the Soviet era particularly, was known for repressing the news or changing it to fit the Communist Party’s version of the truth.
“Even, like, look at what’s happening in Russia with all of the anti-gay propaganda — but I still love Russian citizens,” Fuller said. “I don’t like what the government does, but I like the people.”
KSL is known for refusing to air NBC shows. The Tribune listed the shows KSL has either refused to air or moved into late night spots, Picket Fences, Doctor, Doctor, Poker After Dark, Coupling, God, The Devil and Bob, The Playboy Club, The New Normal as well as the Sports Illustrated swimsuit specials.
TVSpy asked KSL for comment. We will update when we hear back.
