BBC > $550,000 fine for Janet exposure

Federal regulators in the US have fined the CBS TV network a record $550,000 (£306,814) for pop star Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction" in February.
The singer exposed her right breast during a dance routine with Justin Timberlake at this year's Super Bowl.
Now the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) has fined 20 CBS-owned TV stations the maximum penalty for indecency - $27,500 (£15,340) - each.
The fine is the largest ever levied against a US television broadcaster.
However, the agency's five commissioners decided not to fine CBS's affiliate stations - more than 200 in all - which also aired the show.
The breast-baring incident generated a record number of complaints - more than 500,000 - and CBS was quick to apologise.
Timberlake blamed the exposure on a "wardrobe malfunction", while Jackson said it had been an accident.
In March she told chat show host David Letterman a second piece of material had been in place to conceal her breast when Timberlake ripped off her bustier.
