Conservatives Try to Toss Porn from Hotels

Conservative groups want hotels to stop offering porn on TV. The groups call the movies inappropriate. Marriott and Hilton say the pay-per-view movies are a revenue stream. And guests are free not to buy the shows. In New York, Cletus Forson got a ticket for parking in an ambulance zone. He says that's unfair because he's a priest and was at the hospital to give the sacrament to a sick patient. Authorities declined to forgive him.

Conservative groups want hotels to stop offering porn on TV. The groups call the movies inappropriate.
