CNN: "N-Word" Should Be Replaced

A CNN reporter has a novel idea. Let news people speak freely to report news as accurately as possible.

Don Lemon is the latest CNN anchor to say ‘n*****’ during a live broadcast that went unbleeped, though he said the racial slur while discussing the ethics behind the decision of many journalists to refrain from saying the entire curse on air after deeming it too offensive.

During that discussion, Mr Lemon- who is African American- said that by refusing to say the word when used in the context of a story, journalists were effectively lessening its impact.
