F.C.C. Chairman Michael Powell's Statement
Concerning The Agency's Decision To Investigate The
Performance By Janet Jackson And Justin Timberlake
During The Super Bowl XXXVIII Halftime Show

         I am outraged at what I saw during the halftime show of the Super Bowl. Like millions of Americans, my family and I gathered around the television for a celebration. Instead, that celebration was tainted by a classless, crass and deplorable stunt. Our nation's children, parents and citizens deserve better.

         I have instructed the Commission to open an immediate investigation into last night's broadcast. Our investigation will be thorough and swift.
