Weathergirl "Too sexy for Italian television"
After decades of weather bulletins presented by military colonels in full uniform, Italian television got its first weather girls last September.

But the outlook does not seem too bright for the first to hit the airwaves, a former Miss Italy.

Italian TV is infamous for its scantily-clad girls, who are a regular feature - dancing, presenting or just looking pretty - usually alongside a much older, less attractive male presenter.

But Eleonora Pedron, 21, proved there is such a thing as too sexy for Italian TV when she was suspended for doing a rather raunchy magazine spread, sporting only a G-string.

4. Every culture draws the lines of credibility differently.
American television is no less hypocritical in it's demands of women who anchor the news. We expect attractive but highly credible news anchors, even though we'll broadcast all sorts of half-naked women in adverts and sitcoms.

It's a matter requiring a level of credibility. Italian culture expects a level of credibility for weather reporting that American culture does not.

:hi:

6. Italian culture expects a level of credibility
What? Italian television is all about naked and half dressed women. Every program has sexy..medically enhanced breasted women to decorate the set. It is a REQUIREMENT. Blouses buttoned Elvis style and short tight skirts or costumes. Yes.....I would call the *moda* costumes. After viewing Italian television for 10 years one becomes immune to this. I can't see why the weather girl was canned for her outfit. Perhaps the RAI channels have uniformed weathermen but the private ones don't. There is no credibility on Italian television that out plays any other culture. Trust me!
