Does this mean we'll get to see Janet's other nipple?



One can only hope.

Reporting from Washington and Los Angeles — In a sharp rebuke of the Bush-era crackdown on foul language on broadcast television and radio, a federal appeals court on Tuesday struck down the government's near-zero-tolerance indecency policy as a violation of the 1st Amendment protection of free speech.

The ruling is a major victory for the broadcast TV networks, which jointly sued the Federal Communications Commission in 2006.

The case was triggered by unscripted expletives uttered by Bono, Cher and Nicole Richie on awards shows earlier in the decade, and the court's decision calls into question the FCC's regulation of foul language and other indecent content on the public airwaves.

In case you missed it, Google the Internets for "Janet Jackson nipple." Frankly, I don't see what the fuss is all about. First of all, everyone has nipples. Second, you have to spend some time slowing this video down and repeatedly watching it to actually see any nipple action. (Something I have no interest in doing so, sadly, I still have yet to see even one of JJ's nipples.) I hear it was decorated and pierced. Good for her. Everyone needs a hobby.
