Frequent blogginghead, Reason.com's Matt Welch, questions (http://reason.com/blog/2010/03/25/andrew-breitbart-offers-10000) whether or not Civil Rights icon Rep. John Lewis was actually called a N-Word last weekend.

Andrew Breitbart will even pay you (http://biggovernment.com/abreitbart/2010/03/25/2010-a-race-odyssey-disproving-a-negative-for-cash-prizes-or-how-the-civil-rights-movement-jumped-the-shark/) $10,000 if you can provide some evidence of Civil Rights icon Rep. John Lewis being called a N-Word.

fyi: If you don't know what I mean by N-Word, I can't explain it you. Actual use of N-Word is now verboten on bh.tv. You can't even quote someone on it. You have to actually replace N-Word with N-Word. So they tell me in private.

I guess this means diavloggers can no longer say the full length version of N-Word either. Guess we'll have to wait and see if the same standard applies to diavloggers.

This prohibition applies only to the forum, actually.

Well, at least we all know that N-Word is now verboten. Funny how it wasn't verboten until March 26, 2010. I mean, at least now a violent, tea-party radical can't even be straight up quoted. Haha.

Yay censorship!

This is a travesty. I guess Lyle will have to fall back on deploying his innate charisma to get attention.

Hmm... a travesty how?
