CBS will resist Superbowl fines
July 19, 2004 | LOS ANGELES (AP) -- CBS will fight any fines leveled against its television stations over Janet Jackson's startling Super Bowl performance, a top executive with parent company Viacom Inc. said.

CBS could face a Federal Communications Commission fine of $550,000 or a maximum penalty of $27,500 for each of 20 CBS-owned stations, The Associated Press reported last month. An FCC staff recommendation did not call for fining CBS affiliates that aired the Super Bowl halftime show but are not owned by Viacom.

A fine would be "grossly unfair," Leslie Moonves, Viacom co-president and co-chief operating officer, told the Television Critics Association on Sunday.
