The Child-Exploiting Network (TLC) spins Jon's halting of production against Jon

Jon has posted a sign in front of his house telling film crews not to enter.

Look, it's obvious that Jon might have only filed to halt production of his children's TV show because he was mad at Kate. But the end result is that his children will be away from the cameras while going through a terribly messy and painful divorce.

Shockingly, TLC has turned this move all around on Jon and issued the following statement:

"We are aware of Jon Gosselin's recent statements, and remain deeply disappointed at his continued erratic behavior. He and the family were shooting as recently as last Friday, without incident, and his latest comments are grossly inaccurate, without merit and are clearly opportunistic. Despite Jon Gosselin's repeated self destructive and unprofessional actions, he remains under an exclusive contract with TLC. Direct filming of the children has been currently suspended, pending further conversations between both parents."

We don't find asking that a film crew stop filming little children "erratic," "unprofessional" or "self-destructive." We actually find it to be in their best interest. And contracts do not scare us because contracts can be breached, intentionally, especially if it is in the children's best interest. In fact it's unlikely any judge in Pennsylvania wouldn't allow Jon to breach such a contract. They wouldn't even give him a penalty. Paul Petersen of A Minor Consideration, a child actor advocacy group, has even offered to help Jon breach his contract. So go get, 'em Jon, regardless of your motives, this is right for the children.

We want to know how TLC feels justified in filming even one second of a child's journey through a divorce. The children are victims here, and now more than ever need privacy, normalcy, and consistency. This divorce and the children's journey through it is absolutely none of TLC's business and they have no right to interfere. As Jon says, Get OFF his property.
