FBI joins Comcast's Super Bowl porn probe

FBI logoWarning: this post about the FBI's investigation into the Super Bowl porn snafu uses the word "probe" several times. Viewer discretion is advised.

Comcast's probe into the Super Bowl porno snafu has officially become an FBI probe. A Fox affiliate in Tucson reported that the cable provider has asked the FBI to conduct their own probe into the 30 seconds of pornography that aired during Super Bowl XLIII.

Special Agent Manuel Johnson of the Phoenix FBI field office would only confirm for TV Squad that the probe is still ongoing.

Comcast hasn't released anything else. An email to the Arizona Daily Star revealed that Comcast has shared everything they know about the situation with the FBI, but they're not sharing it with you. So nyah nyah.

Meanwhile, the woman who got some primetime face time during the Super Bowl has issued an official apology. Porn star Tristan Kingsley grabbed her five seconds of non-X-rated fame apologized to the people of Tucson for interrupting the game and scaring someone else's children for once life.

She told the paper that she is a mother of two kids and she can "understand where they're coming from" if the mothers in question work at a place where "Take Your Daughter to Work Day" constitutes a federal felony.

"I've read some comments that parents have left on different blogging sites, and I can understand that they'd get a little upset that their children might be watching it," she told the paper. "I would never go and put one of my videos on for my kids to watch."

Of course, any publicity is good publicity and she admits that "Any exposure for anybody is beneficial." Sounds like a tagline from one of her movies, uh, or so a friend of mine told me.
