Weather Channel anchor showing nipple recorded by my DirecTiVo. Who do I complain to?

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.


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.

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 would say complain to no one, but that's just me.

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.

Thanks for the heads up! I looked and, yes indeed, a 'little' nippleage was evident, with 'little' being the key word. I'm sorry, but I wasn't offended. Violence on tv or stupid writing on a tv show may offend me but an attractive and well dressed woman on tv does not.

(edited to add the pictures)

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!

If the clips below are what you're complaining about, then I feel sorry for the children that have to be raised in such a up-tight enviroment.

Yes, by all means complain to the FCC about a erect nipple that you can't even really see.

Ignore the other naysayers in this thread.

Obviously, you should complain to TiVo. It is TiVo's fault that this woman displayed her filthy dirty naughty parts. It is TiVo's responsibility. The FCC? DirectTV? Nothing to do with it. It's TiVo and TiVo alone.

Stupid hippies in this thread.
