The word is "nigger" and the word is "fuck"

I don’t understand why newspapers and TV people can’t use the word “nigger” when discussing the word “nigger”. We all know it is a hateful word that shouldn’t be used as an insult or to refer to people. But when you are talking about the word itself, you are not insulting anybody by saying nigger as opposed to saying “the n-word“.

It also pisses me off that newspapers and TV shows can’t use profanity even when it is news. Like when Cheney told that guy to go fuck himself. They all had to report it as “the f-word”. What the fuck. We all know what the fucking ‘f’ means in that phrase. We all fill it in in our minds. Are we such children that we can’t even report the news word for word anymore?

If the Star Tribune or some other newspaper reported that Cheney said the word “fuck” and some Mommy gets mad about it, the person Mommy should be mad at is Dick fucking Cheney and not the newspaper.
