No Fines Expected in Super Bowl F-Bomb Incident [NSFW VIDEO, POLL]

I think most of America either heard it live on CBS or heard about it Monday morning -  Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco dropped the f-bomb on live television after winning the Super Bowl on Sunday night. CBS cameras were following the MVP around the field as he congratulated his teammates. One teammate looks at Flacco and says “Holy s-it” and Flacco responds “f-ing awesome.”

The Parents Television Council is pushing the FCC to take a stronger stance against broadcasters, but it’s doubtful the FCC will punish CBS for the fleeting expletive. The fact that no fines have been announced has infuriated groups like the Parents Television Council.

So what is the difference in this Super Bowl mishap and the one from 2004 where Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson’s nipple during the half-time performance? Broadcast attorney John Garziglia explains:

One was a scripted halftime program that was clearly entertainment and the other was an off-the-cuff remark in the glare of excitement of winning the Super Bowl.

He goes on to say that the FCC will probably decide that the incident is covered under the breaking news exemption.

Here is the video of the incident – just in case you’ve been living under a rock for the past 48 hours!

My questions for you – Should the FCC fine CBS? I personally think a big time network like CBS should have a more dependable delay system in place.
