CNN Airs Expletive; Other Nets Bleep It

CNN was the only broadcast network to air Bush’s “sh–” unedited yesterday. “On CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox News, MSNBC and USA TODAY, the word was excised in videos and Web stories,” Peter Johnson reports…

 “CNN spokeswoman Christa Robinson says: “The word is not one we would normally air on CNN, but when said by the president in this context, we thought it was appropriate.

“The expletive … was reflective of how these two world leaders talk with each other.”

But David McCormick, NBC News standards chief, says NBC was able to “communicate the spirit of the conversation without actually broadcasting the word.”
