    The time now is 1103AM(EST).

    I was just watching The Weather Channel on Ch. 362 on my DirecTiVo.
    The anchor on the air right now is some woman called "Kelly Cass" and
    she is clearly shwoing her nipples on the air. She probably doesn't realize
    it but I can't belive the cameraman or the producer of the channel didn't
    see it. She is wearing a loose collared shirt and clearly not wearing a bra.
    When she turns, she occassionally reveals one of ther nipular region. :thumbsdown:


    Normally, I wouldn't mind this sort of stuff, accidentally or otherwise.
    However, when I was watching The Weather Channel, I was with my
    niece, her husband, and her young kids.(both boys) She covered their
    eyes up and changed the channel. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Who should I complain to? DirecTV, Tivo, The Weather Channel, or the FCC?
    (if so, which deparment handles the complaints?) Should I make a copy of
    the video my DirecTiVo recorded and send it in?

    Thank you very much for any information!

    You're kidding, right? Please say you're kidding. She covered their eyes? Would they even have noticed?

    Complain to the Weather Channel if you must. DTV has nothing to do with it and the FCC has no control over non-OTA television ... yet.

    Even better, just ignore it. If parents don't make a big deal out of it, kids don't even notice. Last I checked, everybody has nipples.

    Personally I think this is absolutely terrible. You shoudl save a clip of the offending footage on VHS and send it promptly to the mailing address of my office (I've PM'd you :) ) and I promise after reviewing the footage, I'll get right on this.

    Note to self... get another DVR to record Weather Channel 24/7

    Seriously... If you want to complain, it is to the Weather Channel... as everyone getting the Weather Channel feed would have recieved the video footage.

    If Tom's pics are evidence of the so-called "nipplage", I have only three words for the OP


    GET......A.....LIFE!

    To complain about a slight peak showing through a blouse is ridiculous! If you want your complaint to be a pin-up on every Customer Service cube in the land, go ahead and complain. I'm sure it'll even reach me in a recycled "forward this to 100 people" email about silly complaints!

    Sad.

    Perhaps the OP thinks its TiVo's or DirecTV's fault for recording it in the first place? :) Perhaps TWC should start adding TV-MA tags to certain segments?

    Where is the automatic censoring?!? They have DVD players for that stuff now... :)

    After looking at the pics, THAT was it? TWC and/or FCC aren't going to do a thing. After Jennifer Aniston on Friends, tiny bumps protruding through a shirt do NOT seem to matter nowadays. I see it on the streets all the time. And in a lot of cases, they ARE wearing bras - they just don't help in this case!

    This thread was useless WITH pics...

    That cannot be what the OP was complaining about.
