    Perhaps. But going the extra mile, making an effort to punish Jackson? Banning CBS o and os from promoting her album, banning her from the Grammys because he didn't think her apology was good enough? Shoot - MTV produced the thing and was/is under the same umbrella.

    MTV produced it but didn't tell CBS what it was planning.

    CBS got fined a half-million dollars and the FCC also threatened the local stations with substantial fines for airing it. That's 200 or so GMs climbing up Moonves' ass, wanting to know why something on his network was going to cost them tens of thousands of dollars.

    You could certainly argue that singling out Janet was unfair -- somehow Justin Timberlake managed to skate on this one -- but Moonves had every right to be salty.
