Moonves ordered Viacom properties VH1 and MTV, and all Viacom-owned radio stations, to stop playing Jackson's songs and music videos.

Moonves said in a statement following the incident that CBS was "angry and embarrassed" by the malfunction. Jackson reportedly became a target of Moonves hit list to destroy because he thought she wasn't repentant enough, sources said.
Seven years after the incident, Moonves was reportedly "furious" and "aggressive" in tone to several sources after Jackson signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster (which is owned by Viacom) for her 2011 memoir "True You".
