More titillating details have been revealed about why the Indian Information and Broadcasting Ministry has pulled Fashion TV off cable for 10 days. The programmer showed women with less-than-clothed "upper bodies which was offending against good taste and decency," the ministry said in a statement. FTV, it seems, occasionally just pushes its luck in the name of fashion. In 2007 the channel showed "skimpily clad" models during a "Midnight Hot" show segment and only averted a two-month suspension by apologizing and promising never to show such material again. Apparently, 'never' ran out in September 2009 when the latest infraction took place.
