    We have become a very thin skinned society. Words, be it in book titles or headlines or anywhere else, are just words. If you find the title of a book offensive, don't buy the book. If you don't like the content of a television show, don't watch it. If you disagree with everything said on a talk radio show, don't listen. But please don't, under any circumstances, censor it for the rest of us. The government is not your mother.

    Wow! Oh my God, for a second time today I agree with you. I like the Kate of the New Year. I hope you left your twin sister behind in 2012.

    I agree here too. True Story from a small town that I was from: Some pastor went to the Video Store, which had a backroom and rented 10 XXX Movies, yeah that's right 10 skin flick movies and started a protest, petitions, and among other things. It was in the local paper about the pastor rent and the reason that this pastor gave, "I had to watch all 10 to view how disgusting they were." LOL, I am like damn had to rent 10, maybe the quality was not good....

    Hahaha, Corporate America at it's finest. Incompetent and getting paid to be so. These companies make money in spite of themselves rather than because of themselves. C-Span is no different than any corporation in America with a budget of 55 million. Incompetent to the core. It's the American way. That and bragging about how we're the best country in the world when we in fact are not even in the top 10 anymore.

    @MongoAPillager You know Mongo I was going to let this pass because there is no debating a flag waver but for you to bring up Militarily is irresponsible. I'd like this country to declare ourselves neutral and stay the hell out of other countries business. Have you ever been to Switzerland? I have. Ever been to Germany? I have. Been to France? I have. Been anywhere in Canada? I have. All those places many times. There standard of living is excellent. We spy on our own people, turn our parents in for Pot for god's sake, listen in on phone calls, read our emails, can take us to prison for life without a trial, a charge, a lawyer or even letting our families know where we are. Buddy we are the USSR today. And those people thought they were the cats meow just like you. NOW, this is the part where you tell me Love it or leave it.

    @jessejaymes our military for better or worse are just doing what the people we elect tell them to do,,most of the afore mentioned countries would be toast if we did not either defend or bankroll them,and yes you are quite correct about our loss of freedoms and privacy,have not been to Europe,but have been to Asia a several times as well as canada.and for the most part they are quite envious of our lifestyle.UUUmmmm i don,t get the whole cat thing???Love it or leave it,?No stay and fix it,

    C-Span is federally subsidized. They could have done more to blur out the offensive titles. Whoever is responsible for failing to do that should be punished.

    Here we go again. The discussion has become about "thinned skined viewers" but I'll be darned if I can find where the article says anyone was really offended, just that C-span apologized in case someone was. Why are we arguing over nothing?
