Janet's Boob Won't Cost a Thing

7/21/2008 11:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So Janet Jackson's naked nip won't end up costing CBS half a mil after all.

A federal appeals court just tossed the $550K fine against CBS for her infamous 2004 "wardrobe malfunction," ruling that the FCC acted "arbitrarily and capriciously" in slapping CBS with the fine.

CBS didn't immediately have comment, nor did the FCC.

I thought the whole thing was stupid from the start. We need to stop the censorship. The Bush administration has been sneeking in and taking our rights away for the last 8 years. Maybe, now we will see a little support for the Constitution and our rights.

The FCC's attempt at fining CBS is the only thing that is obscene. A harmless mistake occurred on live television, and CBS should not have to pay for something so innocuous and something over which it had no control. It makes more sense to get rid of the prudes who wanted to punish CBS.

Why should they be fined? They didn't know she was going to do it....... they had nothing to do with it....... they also can't prove that it wasn't an accident.......... people need to stop being so shocked over nudity......... we are born nude! it is art....

Didn't she have a thing that looked like a sheriff's star stuck over her nip? Or was that added later? Whatever the case, I think this was much ado about nothing. All those kids they were so worried about have been seeing Donald Duck without pants for years!

Cry, cry, cry. Janice, you are so stupid. Bush didn't take anyone's rights away. Censorship has been practiced for decades!!!!! If you wanna watch boobs pop out, go to a porn site, not a freakin' football game.

That "incident" was no accident. It was planned that way, that is why she was wearing that huge ugly nipple shield.
They did it for the shock value and publicity. I heard it from her stylist.
