Yes, they were techincally responsible, but I dont believe that finding them at fault would really accomplish anything.
    I never said they were at fault did I? Don't make assumptions for me. I said they were "responsible". Responsible means they pay the price, what ever that ends up being. Can they prevent this type of thing in the future? Probably not, but if they write their contracts better in the future regarding such "willfull disregard" and back it up with stiff punishment of their own if those rules are breached, then Yes, they can make a difference in the prevention.

    It actually depends on how you "look" at the boob.

    I don't see it as porn. If it's porn, then there should be tons of "sexual act", not showing your boobs and looked shocked . (should i say it's the worse porn act? )

    Anyways, I would rather see as a guy's insult on female's body. Females have the rights to show their chest like men did, but they don't need a man to do it for them.

    The episode with Janet Jackson's boob was wrong, we all know it. But revoking the license of the CBS because of that? I am completely against showing "porn" in the Super Bowl, mainly because there are millions of little kids watching, but that is too hard! Perhaps a fine should be OK, but sending the CBS away, come on, there have been worst things than that showed in American television...

    The FCC should punish CBS and its affiliates by banning them from running infomercials! The public would love it and it would hit the broadcasters in their bottom line.

    As for Jackson and Timberlake, they should simply be banned from any further television appearances since they have proved that they don't have the discretion to know when children might be watching or what is suitable for family programming.

    Another lame response. It is not "going after" anyone. Simply enforcing a rule/law. It cannot be enforced intermittantly.

    Here is a question for you emu boy....

    Who does your pre-flight inspection? And why?

Yes, they were techincally responsible, but I dont believe that finding them at fault would really accomplish anything. They had watched the rehearsal and everything looked fine. Then a boob popped out during the real thing. The only way that the management of CBS would really have complete control over what happens on the stage would be to go up there and do the halftime show themselves. Just like if a pilot were to do their own inspections, etc. I just dont think that taking CBS' license away will really accomplish anything, which I believe is the point of having rules to begin with.

    What was done was wrong and was a clear breach of FCC policy. They knew exactly what they were doing and should be punished in some manner. The problem with a fine is its pocket change for CBS. At least IMO the rights to the Super bowl should be pulled from CBS, which will send a clear message to the networks.

    None of that is broadcast live, over the air during prime time.

    Big difference.

    I think they introduced that system after this. It's now a 5 minute delayed broadcast for every such major event - one recent one being the Grammys yesterday.

    What was the "tape delay" guy doing while this was going on..isnt there usually a 10-15 sec tape delay during these live events just for something like this.
