The (not quite) Daily Stern
: The FCC is getting ready to fine CBS $550,000 for Janet Jackson’s nipple.
Shouldn’t they feel just a little embarrassed, grown men sitting there tsk-tsking a nipple with the full force of government. Infantile.
Says the Washington Post:
“We would be extremely disappointed,” CBS said in a statement issued last night. “While we regret that the incident occurred, and have apologized to our viewers, we continue to believe that nothing in the Super Bowl broadcast violated indecency laws.
“We would obviously review all of our options to respond to the ruling and we continue to call on the FCC to address serious issues raised by the more than 30 industry participants who challenged the FCC’s sweeping new indecency policy,” the statement said.
