Politicos move to protect teens from porn

Dispatch

PARIS — The French government is examining ways to protect youngsters by limiting the amount of pornography and violence shown on national television.

New regulations suggested by presidential advisor Blandine Kriegel include banning such programs between 7 a.m. and 10:30 p.m.

Culture Minister Jean-Jacques Aillagon has called for greater powers for TV watchdog the Conseil Superieur de l’Audiovisuel to fine channels that don’t respect regulations on violence and porn.

The Kriegel Commission of 36 social experts, set up in June, concluded that violence and pornography on TV was having an adverse moral effect on French youth.

It has recommended that all feevees use scrambling systems that can only be broken by parents with a code, and that porn films should be available only on pay-per-view.
