Rutgers- Asking Great Questions.

Unfortunately, some people forgot to ask great questions during this past week.

The newspaper I used to work for, The Asbury Park Press, printed the f-word — THE ENTIRE WORD — not once, but TWICE, in its Mike Rice story. And the f-bombs are followed by anti-gay slurs.
Now, even though there is an editor’s note preceding the story warning of derogatory language, was it really necessary to print them out? I think the majority of people could guess what they are even if they contained dashes.
What do you think? Should news organizations still adhere to stringent rules about profanity? Or should it not faze us anymore? Does it even matter?
