You may have noticed that the tone of political discourse has changed in America during the current election season. And with that change, many major news organizations are easing standards for when it’s OK to print a bad word. The WSJ outlined its policy: “As you might have noticed, we now allow the printing of most vulgarities if they are in direct quotations and our news judgment is that the quotation is important to include because it gives insight into how the person communicates, his or her depth of feeling on a subject, or character. Thus, an executive referring to a ‘shit storm’ or a politician (guess who) vowing to ‘bomb the shit’ out of Islamic State’s oil operations.” (Because of email content filters, I have to save my best stuff for my internal monologue.)
