American Censorship

The Parents Television Council is warning parents and radio stations not to broadcast Britney Spears' "If U Seek Amy" because the organization believes it "would violate the broadcast indecency law" if aired between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. [Billboard.]

Growing up listening to Howard Stern, OTCS can't help but wonder: if Britney Spears violates indecency laws, is it time to reexamine the scope (and purpose) of broadcast indeceny laws?
