CBS Jackson Super Bowl fine reconsidered
Ridiculous. A federal appeals court will re-examine the FCC fine it threw out against CBS over Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" during the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show.
How many times does six-year-old nipple slip need to be fought over?
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia on Tuesday will consider whether the FCC's $550,000 fine for the broadcaster over the breast-baring performance is permissible. The lower court threw out the fine in 2008, saying the FCC acted arbitrarily and capriciously in issuing the fine for the half-second of nudity.
Rooting for CBS on this.
