Did America's Funniest Home Videos
just broadcast kiddyporn?

I watched a recent $100 000-finalists episode of AFHV. One of the clips showed a naked toddler backing into a water sprinkler, then squatting on it.
How in the heck is this not considered child pornography?
I know damn well that innocent photos of toddlers in bathtubs have resulted in child abuse charges against surprised and horrified parents. I am absolutely certain that if the clip were cut into a porno tape, it'd change the classification from X-rated, but legal, into a highly illegal, throw you in gaol forever tape.
ABC and The Disney Channel are exempt from child pornography rules? Were the producers just blissfully unaware that the clip could be trouble? Or have I been misinformed, and the bizarre hysteria over innocent kiddy activities finally be over? What really gives?
