FCC Fines CBS Stations for Super Bowl Incident

The Federal Communications Commission is fining each of the 20 CBS-owned television stations $27,500 for broadcasting indecent material. The total of $550,000 in fines stems from the Janet Jackson "wardrobe malfunction" incident during the 2004 Super Bowl. NPR's Larry Abramson reports.
