CBS Wins Janet Jackson Wardrobe Malfunction Case!

| Filed under: Justin TimberlakeJanet JacksonLegal Matters

Janet Justin CBS Drop

Remember when Justin Timberlake "accidentally" exposed Janet Jackson's ta-ta during the 2004 Superbowl Half Time Show??

Well, a court today threw the decision to fine CBS half a million dollars for the incident!

The court of appeals basically said that the FCC '"arbitrarily and capriciously" departed from prior policy that exempted "fleeting" indecency from sanctions.'

In other words, in a bunch of different cases before that 2004 night, the FCC refused to fine people for little snippets of improper things, so why would they have changed that just to fine CBS?

The next step is to see if the FCC's policy is even constitutional.

Should the have been fined, or is the FCC too sensitive??

    complete waste of court time and tax dollars for a non issue.



  2. 2

    They "threw it"? Threw it where?
    .
    You, of course, mean "threw it out" — but because you NEVER proof read your own work, this makes no sense.
    .
    You are NOT a journalist. Stop butchering our language

    Good, they did it on purpose and cbc should have a time delay because these celebs are dirtbags and will do anything for attention.



  4. 4

    Completely intentional - and obvious - nip slips are common these days.
    .
    Janet is just an Attention Ho.
    .
    Her nipple turned off so many people that, now she's taken to leaving her (no doubt not doing well) concert dates in Australia. This to be in court for some (camera time disguised as) family 'support' in the railroading of some poor doctor pressured by her psycho brother.

    Re: Elron Hubbard - Con Man – u r a fucking idiot. Nobody on tv even saw anything. The cameras panned back. It wasnt until the press made a HUGE deal out of it that it was such a major story. If you watch the actual clip that aired, u cant see any nipple

    W T F ??? Fucking prude hypocrits!!!! Seriously? You let all these underage Disney clones run around looking like whores, you let sex offenders go free if they register and promiese to be good, you have multimillion porn industry in the states, and you get worked up over THIS??????????? WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY!!!!!

    They should have fined their asses. A lot of malfunction happening these days and that's why tv is trash.



  8. 8
