Janet’s Flash May Cost CBS

The FCC is proposing to fine CBS the maximum allowable amount – $550,000 – for the now-infamous on-air baring of Janet Jackson’s right breast during the Super Bowl halftime show. The fines would officially be levied against 20 CBS “O&O’s” – affiliate stations which are owned and operated by the New York-based network. The FCC, which has been accused in recent months of being on a witchhunt, had vowed to review the incident, which prompted the recent government crackdown on supposedly indecent material airing on American TV and radio.
