France Bans Miley and Britney Videos Before Dark: Should the US Do the Same?

France is known for their nude beaches and risqué advertisements (among many other things) but America's favorite pop stars have been deemed inappropriate for daytime French TV.

Miley Cyrus' video for "Wrecking Ball" and Britney Spears' video for "Work B**ch" are only allowed to air after 10pm, thanks to French broadcast watchdog CSA.

While they called "Wrecking Ball" too sexually explicit, they believe "Work B**ch" shows "a sadomasochistic universe representing women in a way that risks shocking many viewers."

What do you think, SodaHeads? Do you agree with the CSA? If so, should the United States follow suit?

    Pathetic. I grew up with Britney Spears/Christina Aguilera/many other artists who have been pictured "scantily dressed" or bordering on nude, and I didn't end up dancing on a table with my knickers over my ankle. In fact, I've noticed that the kids growing up in this weird "censorship" craze are the ones doing that... the more you try to deprive kids of stuff like this, the more they will romanticise it. They are clever and streetwise enough to know the difference between what's on TV and what happens in real life, even if most 40-odd year old housewives are not.

    Don't want those late night kids stumbling upon it. Seriously, it used to be risque to show your ankles. Now you're pretty much allowed to broadcast porn on public access. Something's wrong.

    The viewing of Miley and Britney videos serves a useful public service. Those who choose to view them self-identify as morons.

    It's a choice to view the videos or not. If you dislike them, don't watch. Others may want to watch them, and banning it isn't worth the effort.

    On the other hand, since France has shown more puritan behavior - could we PLEASE remove all of them big-government supporters from our land? It seems only fair...

    Well, maybe for people under 40. I don't believe in most censuring. So, perhaps age-related censuring of these videos.

    I don't like either Britney or Miley but someone else may so it is not he right of "America" to do so. It is the right of the individual to make that decision to ban it from him or herself

    Yes, ban them from 10 pm until 10 pm of the following day. Every day.

    Not that we should EVER follow the example of the French, of course.
