Justin Timberlake reached his right arm across Janet Jackson's torso and removed a detachable portion of
Janet Jackson's costume, causing her right breast to be exposed during the half-time ceremonies. Timberlake initially called
the incident a "wardrobe malfunction". Janet Jackson later apologized for the incident, saying that none of the major broadcast

One of the medical disclaimers for the drug is: "Erections lasting more than 4 hours, though rare, require
immediate medical attention."

Mainstream network news coverage of this was intense, causing the Director of the FCC to appear before Charles
Gibson on ABC's Good Morning America. Charles Gibson asked probing questions like, "Well, isn't this what we see every day?"
Since the coverage was intense and lasted for days, it appeared bigger than the coverage of the nightmare Christmas earthquake

show; I only saw it during news coverage where it was blurred out)
