“CCAV: against pornography, violence and vulgarity.”
CCAV (China Central Adult Video) is a derogatory nickname for CCTV (China Central Television).
CCAV became a popular term when CCTV’s evening news broadcast a piece about the need to crack down on adult videos. The term can be used to describe something hypocritical.
CCTV is often a target among Chinese netizens. Han Han, China’s most popular blogger, took aim when the new CCTV headquarters, still under construction, caught fire in early 2009.
