CBS finally skates on Super Bowl incident
Maybe better late than never, but a court has thrown out the FCC's $550,000 fine against CBS for the Janet Jackson Super Bowl booboo from, um, FOUR YEARS AGO.
Actually, I'm not opposed to there being some kind of sanction for indecency, I just hate the way the current system is set up and administered. The FCC is the wrong organization to be overseeing this. They're in charge of frequencies and broadcasts standards ... but technical standards, not moral standards. Plus, the process they have is totally insane.
As arbitrary and capricious as the MPAA movie ratings are, at least they're voluntary and independent.
