Emma Gannon reports:

An NBC station in Colorado sexually exploited a 14-year-old boy by broadcasting a picture of his penis and identifying him in a news story, the teenager claims in court.

Levi Holden, now 16, sued KOAA TV Channel 5 & 30, NBC Universal, Comcast, and six KOAA employees on Jan. 29 in Federal Court.

The parties dispute whether KOAA was supposed to keep Levi’s name confidential. But if KOAA really aired a thumbnail of a picture of his erect penis, I have to wonder what the hell KOAA’s editors were thinking – even without attribution or display of any Facebook page, that just seems so… inappropriate.
