CBS To Contest Janet Jackson Fine

CBS Files Appeal To Contest Janet Jackson Fine In Court

CBS has paid its $550,000 FCC fine for the now-infamous Janet Jackson/Super Bowl incident, but the network has only done so because it can now contest the fine in court.In a statement, the network announced, "CBS is filing today an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit seeking to overturn the FCC's finding that the 2004 Super Bowl half-time broadcast was legally indecent. A prerequisite for filing this appeal is to pay the $550,000 fine, which we are also doing today only for this procedural reason.""CBS has apologized to the American people for the inappropriate and unexpected half-time incident, and immediately implemented safeguards that have governed similar broadcasts ever since. However, we disagree strongly with the FCC's conclusions and will continue to pursue all remedies necessary to affirm our legal rights."Visit FMQB.com for more on this Breaking News story...
