A commentator over at emptywheel had this to say on their article on William Barr’s performance piece yesterday.

some may believe this to be a trivial point but here goes - I feel strongly the tv newscasters and radio broadcasters should say the actual profane words uttered by the president and his minions - the American people need to have the jarring words ring in their ears. As a friend said to me - “so true. It started with shielding the public from grab them by their pussy. If our privileged white sisters had to hear that time and again….. maybe just maybe they would have “heard” it.”

That might have helped, but FCC regulations are pretty harsh if you broadcast stuff like that (as George Carlin adeptly demonstrated and Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” showed).
