TLC Putting Duggars Back On Air–In Sex Abuse Doc
A sex abuse documentary will put the Duggars back on TLC which seems to seeking a way to capitalize on the controversy surrounding the family.
Although leaving the Duggars on the air would have been terrible PR, featuring Jill and Jessa Duggar—two of Josh’s victims—in a documentary special about child sex abuse strikes the perfect balance between acknowledging the problem and milking a big, troubled TV family for publicity.
In honor of its effort to raise awareness of child sex abuse (along with its effort to raise awareness of the television network TLC), TLC has decided to run Breaking the Silence commercial-free, Perez Hilton reports. The network has also partnered with anti-abuse orgs RAINN and Darkness to Light in the interest of adding credibility to its attempt to repent for the sexual abuses suffered by the Duggar girls and former TLC star Honey Boo Boo’s sister Anna.
