NBC Televises Bare Breast During Women's Water Polo THR
Another potential issue has surfaced for NBC's Olympics coverage, with the network accidentally broadcasting a female water polo player's breast, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Although there has been no public fallout as of yet, accidental network nudity has caused major controversy in the past," the article notes, pointing to the 2004 "wardrobe malfunction" that exposed Janet Jackson's breast during the Super Bowl halftime show.
"The pulling of swimsuits is considered fairly common practice in water polo, since it is a quite physical sport. Nevertheless, the incident only exacerbates the potential for criticisms of NBC for their coverage of the 2012 Olympic Games," the story adds.
