The FCC is expected to fine 20 CBS-owned stations a record $550,000 for violating broadcast decency standards when it aired Janet Jackson's nipple last January. In a statement, CBS said, "While we regret that the incident occurred and have apologized to our viewers, we continue to believe that nothing in the Super Bowl broadcast violated indecency laws." Of course, they also think Center of the Universe is funny, so clearly their judgment is a little off.
