Even Michael Powell thinks Nipplegate was overblown, now.
Powell, the FCC chairman who most vocally opposed Janet Jackson and her breast, recently told ESPN Magazine:dummy
I had to put my best version of outrage on that I could put on. Part of it was surreal, right? Look, I think it was dumb to happen, and they knew the rules and were flirting with them, and my job is to enforce the rules, but, you know, really? This is what we're gonna do? ... I personally thought that was really unfair. It all turned into being about her. In reality, if you slow the thing down, it's Justin [Timberlake] ripping off her breastplate.
