In A Surprise To No One, It Turns Out Your Cellphone Carrier Might Be Spying On Your Online Usage

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

Call us shocked.

A new report claims that your cellphone carrier could be tracking what you do on your smartphone!

Apparently, companies like AT&T and Verizon are tapping into at least 100 million users' phones to see just what they're up to on the internet.

While this isn't surprising, it is interesting to hear what the major phone carriers have to say about the scandalous invasion of privacy.

Miley Cyrus' BANGERZ Special Has Got NBC In Hot Water With The FCC! What Did They Expect?

miley cyrus nbc bangerz special fcc fines

NBC should've seen this one coming when they decided to air a two-hour special a la Miley Cyrus!

After airing that fateful primetime special on July 6th and receiving dismal ratings for the show, the peacock network was in hot water with its viewers.

A TON of complaints came pouring in due to the raunchiness of Miley's Bangerz performance and now the FCC is involved!

Apparently the one thing that got everyone's undies in a bunch was when the Can't Be Tamed singer was grinding against a man in an Abe Lincoln costume!

Can't a girl just have a little fun with historical figures?! LOLz!

After receiving all of those complaints, the FCC is now investigating whether or not the program violated the broadcasting rules of "sexual or excretory activity."

If anything the network will just be fined or get a slap on the wrist for airing such risqué content!

Janet Jackson Finally Gets Justice! FCC Chairman Says She Was Unfairly Treated For Super Bowl Halftime Show!

former fcc chairman admits janet jackson was poorly treated for super bowl halftime show

Well it's about darn time!

10 years ago, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake took the stage at Super Bowl XXXVIII for what would turn out to be one of the most controversial halftime shows of all time!

You know, the one where JT exposed Janet's armored boobie on national television and sparked outrage from concerned mothers everywhere!!

Well Michael Powell was the FCC chairman at the time of the performance, and while he originally denounced it as "a new low for prime-time TV," he's now speaking out about the drama and says the whole thing may have been

Filed under: Miley CyrusRobin ThickeVMASGIFs

The general public is totally hating on Miley Cyrus' raunchy VMA performance, with 150 official FCC complaints!

Pornographic, shameful and vulgar…

Those are just a few choice words on display in 150 offcial FCC complaints Miley Cyrus received following her epic bump and grind sesh with Robin Thicke at the VMAs!

Mileybird and her history-making twerkfest helped the Video Music Awards reach 10.1 million viewers on August 25, but also stirred up maJOR controversy!

Some are comparing it to the Super Bowl nipple-gate of 2004, which prompted a $550,000 fine that was eventually thrown out!

One of the FCC complainers exclaimed:

FCC Won't Fine NBC For Airing 'Bullsh-t' Chant Unedited

Filed under: TV NewsFootball

As we previously mentioned, the Baltimore Raven's coach John Harbaugh was signaling for a ref to come talk to him and he had stepped out onto the field.

That was a big mistake. It was unsportsmanlike conduct and he was penalized for harassing the ref.

He claimed he was just trying to ask the ref for a timeout, and the fans all believed him. Or they didn't. It didn't matter. The ref penalized their coach, so they did all they could do…

They let their opinions be heard by chanting "bullsh-t!"

Football announcer Al Michaels said it was the

Steven Tyler Is All For Censorship

Filed under: TV NewsLegal MattersPolitik

steven-tyler-for-censorship-web.jpg

Steven Tyler is down for a bleep here or there. But too many bleeps, then where's the fun?

The FCC is under scrutiny over its regulation policies and the Supreme Court will hear a case on the matter. The Aerosmith frontman is willing to provide his own legal counsel for the FCC.

There's a certain charm and passion and magic in not showing full-frontal nudity. It's really hot when you only show a little

Tyler goes on to say that a clever quip or pun is okay but if rules and regulations were revoked, there would be no creativity or fun.

The FCC's troubles started back in 2003 when Bono

Will Swearing Be Allowed On TV Soon???

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

swearing may soon be allowed on tv

We f***ing hope so! LOLz!

Today, broadcast networks are going in front of Supreme Court to argue that they shouldn't be scrutinized by the FCC.

Even though the Supreme Court ruled the FCC's ban on swearing to be "entirely rational" in 2009, the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals is now saying that "the FCC policy was unconstitutionally vague."

AND given the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court does seem interested in expanding the First Amendment, it's quite possible that they might rule in favor of the networks.

Should be quite the f***in' day at Supreme Court! Ha!

We wish the networks luck with their cause!!!!!
