Even Howard Stern has weighed in on the huge story in NASCAR this week, which, of course, is Dale Earnhardt Jr. losing points and his lead.

On Monday's radio show, Stern said that NBC should be fined as much money as CBS was when Janet Jackson stripped to reveal a bare breast at Super Bowl XXXVIII.  That would be $550,000.

What an extreme measure that would be!  For one thing, Earnhardt Jr. simply let a word slip out, while there is some evidence that the strip tease was deliberately planned.  Also, Bill Weber apologized to viewers immediately, while CBS did nothing during its broadcast.

And Stern, who this morning signed to move his radio show to Sirius Satellite Radio, is not exactly the best judge of on-air morals.

CBS is one of the most controversial networks.  I only watch them occasionally.  They should be fined, imo.

The FCC held the network responsible.  They should do the same for NBC...equal penalties, right?  If NBC had gone to the 10 second delay, this would all be a moot point.  Not only did NBC 'give' us the crapshoot, they may also end up being the determining factor in who wins it.  Lovely.

And there's this: Howard Stern plans to move his radio show to Sirius Satellite Radio (home of Mongo) in January 2006.  Stern said that he is looking forward to it, because of his battles with the radio establishment and the FCC. :twisted:
