    Network Bleeps Janet Jackson For Saying 'J' Word
    Letterman Is Singer's First Network Appearance Since Super Bowl

    CBS has finally gotten its shot at bleeping Janet Jackson.

    Jackson appeared on David Letterman's show and the censors bleeped her for saying "Jesus" in the singer's first network television appearance since her infamous breast-baring incident at the Super Bowl in February.

    She said it in apparent exasperation as Letterman asked her about her in famous "wardrobe malfunction" -- as her co-performer Justin Timberlake described it -- at the conclusion of the duo's halftime number.

    Letterman's "Late Show" broadcasts, like Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" are taped hours before they air, so if there is any objectionable content, censor have ample warning to edit anything out.

    ABC's "Good Morning America" won't quite have the same luxury of time Tuesday when Jackson appears: the show will only have a five-second delay for her performance.

    Jackson is making the rounds on network television to promote her new album, "Damita Jo," which is in stores Tuesday.

    On Letterman, Jackson insisted baring her breast was an accident and not a stunt. She said she and Justin Timberlake did not rehearse what happened.

    Jackson repeatedly told Letterman she didn't want to talk about the incident.

    She said she wants to put it behind her and she's sure people are sick of hearing about it. But Letterman says he wasn't so sure about that.

    Jackson said it was "very embarrassing" to "have so many people see this little breast."

    The controversy erupted Feb. 1, when, at the end of a flirtatious duet between Timberlake and Jackson, Timberlake reached across Jackson's leather gladiator outfit and pulled off part of her bustier -- leaving Jackson's right breast exposed. Jackson, Timberlake, CBS and halftime show producer MTV all apologized for the incident, but it wasn't enough for the Federal Communications Commission, which called it a "deplorable stunt" and launched an investigation.

    I want to know how this can be done while claiming it free speech.

    The point is that it is illegal.

    :D

    I have heard many people claim TV should be censored. Then they turn around complaining that the 10 commandments have been removed.

    The reality is that this was forseen and the Constitution provides that no restrictions are to be placed on that freedom.

    TV is an excuse and it is entertainment, not necessity.
    We have a right to speak, not hear.

    So, if you turn on the TV,

    1: Look at boobs

    or

    2: Turn it off and look at your own or read a book.

    -or read a book with boobs in it......

    Now see what you guys did to me?

    Funny how that works. Jesus is censored, Janet's tit is exposed.

    I know, she said it in vain.

    But the point remains.

    Every Jewish movie reviewer save one has called "The Passion" "pornographic." If you think I'm exaggerating, look at compilation by William Donohue. More here: http://www.catholicleague.org/03press_releases/quarter3/030812_passion.htm

    But they're all silent on the Jackson tit, except for the Jewish media mogul's comment that it's "no big deal."

    Don't let your kids near the "Talmudvision," people.

    The problem stems from the overwhelming belief that boobs are evil, and kids shouldn't see them. I was more pissed off about how they were dancing, than the boob. I don't want my kids simulating sex when they dance...EVER...until they are 30 or I am dead. :)

    Good point. Boobs are not evil. Most people want to censor that sort of thing since they cannot address the fact that human feelings and actions are what needs to be controlled.

    They fear their response, so they censor the media.

    The dancing, however IS an issue.

    Ok, I can't keep quiet on this, I'm here more for learning but this issue is really irritating. What is the big deal about a boob. I have two of them, if one happens to be shown, whats the big deal. People offended? It's a part of our beautiful body. If you choose not to see those kinds of things don't look. Thats called freedom of choice, which the American government doesn't seem to give us a choice anymore. We have to go with what the majority FEELS like they want to see.

    Sorry for the venting, by the way, yes I'm new but I'm more of a lurker.

    Maybe the majority of america does not want to see a boob at a televised half time show.

    During the half-time show of the Super Bowl? You must be joking. I cannot fucking stand this liberal response to obscenity on television: "Turn the channel, Nyah Nyah Nyah." No, no, no. Television and radio are different from other media, because they are immediate. The government has recognized this, and that's why the FCC can legitimately crack down on obscenity.

    Boobs are beautiful. Yes, and they retain their mysterious beauty by STAYING COVERED UP most of the time. Vaginas are natural, should we have them on TV for the kids to see, too?

    Turn the channel. Turn the channel on our declining civilization is more like it.
