The article reports that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission has rejected the request by CBS Broadcasting Inc. to reconsider a 550,000 dollar indecency fine against the company for an incident involving the exposure of singer Janet Jackson's private part. Based on the investigation conducted by the agency, it has been concluded that the incident, which took place in November 2004, had violated decency standards for broadcasting.
