OUTRAGE AT CBS AFTER JANET BARES BREAST DURING DINNER HOUR; SUPER BOWL SHOW PUSHES LIMITS

**Exclusive**

Top CBS executives approved a musical skit where Janet Jackson would expose her breast during the MTV-produced Super Bowl half-time concert, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

"The decision to go forward went to the very top of the network," a well-placed source explained from New York.

The groundbreaking scene came during the most-watched television broadcast of the year -- and during the dinner hour for the nation's west coast viewers.

In a press release before Sunday's game, CBS's sister outlet. [VIACOM's] MTV promised "Janet's Shocking Moments."

"I'll get you naked by the end of this song," sang performer Justin Timberlake, moments before he ripped off Jackson's top, exposing a bare breast -- the nipple covered by a tassel.

CBS's main New York switchboard was immediately bombarded with complaints about the stunt, netowrk sources said late Sunday.

She is stupid and the top brass at CBS should be tarred, feathered and run out of town for allowing her to do it.

If I wanted to measure the country's acceptance of body exposure, I'd arrange for something like this and analyze the response.

Durring the pre-game show there was several shots of pregame parties and such with shots of "painted on" clothes. It only takes a second look or double take to realize that she aint got no clothes on.

If CBS condoned this, they should NEVER be allowed to host the Super Bowl again. The network should at least be given a 10 year penalty for "Unnecessary Roughness" with the audience!

MTV Morals

What do you expect?

"It's unlikely that MTV will produce another Super Bowl halftime."

This may hurt CBS in an effort to renegotiate the NFL contract when the 2005-06 season expires. This is the network's last Super Bowl under the current NFL contract.

More Jackson studpidity - it will take the media focus off Michael for a day or two.

I don't watch sports. I don't watch the Jacksons. Today is a work day in New Zealand, and I am working!

I have to work today because I have to support entitlements for the illegal and lazy given to me by the fat slob ted kennedy, clintons, et al" (a lifeguard?)

I work from my home.

Worst halftime show in Superbowl history.

Could not understand any words (I'm glad), just a bunch of jumping around and then a striptease. Gee, is this the absolute best CBS can do?

And each of those entertainers probably are so proud of themselves for their endeavor. What a shame that they think this elevates their standing.

I think it's a good thing that JimRob and the mods try to maintain a more family-friendly atmosphere here.

Drudge will put that photo on his site because it's going to get hits by people who want to see Janet Jackson's indecency. But that Drudge posts it for the benefit of his own site doesn't mean that it's got to be posted here.

This is a load of swamp water.

By law, I have to watch women flop a breast out to feed their gremlins at the next table and in that case the nipple isn't even covered. Hell, I had to do that as an elementary school student rehearsing a Christmas play. The bus driver was sitting there in the pews breast feeding like it was nothing. She was escorted out to another location but by then the cat was out of the bag and all that. And that was the 1980's.

This is terminally prudish non-sense. What do you expect at a Insipid Bowl half time show? If she wasn't Janet JACKSON few would give a damn.

From what I've heard attributed to Miss Spears no one could see if he had anyway.

I'm more offended he was there period than by the breast.

"She is stupid and the top brass at CBS should be tarred, feathered and run out of town for allowing her to do it."


I agree--BUT years ago they never would have allowed it because tarring and feathering would be the least that would have happened to them.

They do it today secure in the knowledge that nothing will happen to them or their business. Displaying this pigs breast in a society for pigs is no big deal. Heck this is predictable and it WAS predicted back in the 60's when the our culture began decaying and the pigs began taking over.

Now, for the question everyone is thinking, but afraid to ask: "Does Janet Jackson really exist -- or, is that really just Michael in drag?" (As for the breast: Hey, I hear you can do a LOT with plastic surgery these days.)

You know, I haven't watched a football game all the way through since I played clarinet in the high school band in 1972.

I'm pretty sure I didn't watch the game then.

I was watching Ellen D. in the horn section.
