The FCC Is Itching To Reopen The Nipplegate Case

How retro. The FCC has proclaimed that it would like to “further investigate” Nipplegate, i.e., the moment in 2004 when Justin Timberlake pulled at Janet Jackson‘s costume during the Super Bowl halftime show, baring her pierced nipple and traumatizing children for years, even though a commercial for Viagra that made reference to a “four-hour erection” aired during the same program and apparently had no adverse effect. The FCC has brought their complaint all the way up to the Third District Appeals Court, hoping that the case can be reopened. “The evidence in this case strongly suggests that CBS had access to video delay technology at the time of the 2004 Super Bowl,” the FCC said. In other words, they think the nip slip was “willfull.” Really? Does anyone still care about this? And doesn’t our government have better things to be spending its time on? [Gawker] Keep reading »

I had to ask my chef, ‘How’s Obama doing?’ I haven’t read a newspaper…Now at least I know that I can step up to the plate and not crumble when I’m needed. When it comes to something like this that is so, so serious, so painful, so traumatic, I can handle it.”

On behalf of my family and myself, thank you for all of your love. Thank you for all of your support. We miss him so much.” Then her voice got shaky.
