You would think that this story would have gone away by now, but Comcast is convinced that there was a bit of foul play involved in the showing of porn in Arizona during the Super Bowl. Comcast has now bypassed all lower level of law enforcement, and are heading straight to the top. The Federal Bureau of Investigation....
Comcast is turning to the FBI to help determine how pornography interrupted its feed of the Super Bowl earlier this month.I don't know how exactly someone could override Comcast's systems, but I guess it's possible. If I were the FBI, I'd immediately look at this being an "inside job". Ha, get it? Inside....porn??? Shut up.
"We have shared all of our information on this situation with the FBI and will continue to provide our full cooperation to them throughout their investigation," company spokeswoman Kelle Maslyn said in a statement e-mailed to the Star.
Thousands of Comcast's Tucson-area customers who were watching its standard-definition feed during the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl on Feb. 1 were subjected to a 30-second clip from a pay-per-view porn channel.
The clip, which included full male nudity, was the result of a malicious act, Comcast said last week.
"Our investigation has proven that our technical systems were working properly," Maslyn wrote.
