Dear Media: Ur Doin it wrong

For god's sake, if you're going to cover the George Carlin story, do it right.

Every fucking media outlet mentions the existence of the 7 Words You Can't Say on TV.

None of them are saying what they are.

If these words have ever been news, today's the day. Even Kevin Martin and his band of jackbooted idiots at the FCC can't reasonably argue otherwise (not that they've ever reasonably done anything). Last I checked, in fact, the FCC doesn't regulate cable or the print media, so CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and others should have no problem at all.

So, reporters, remember the following words:

Shit. Piss. Fuck. Cunt. Cocksucker. Motherfucker. Tits.

Seven motherfucking words. Say 'em until Al Swearengen blushes. It's not quite what George would have wanted (I think that would be, "to not be dead"), but it's a start.
