Why is MSNBC bleeping the word "whore" from the Jerry Brown story?

Suddenly, NBC treats the word “whore” as so offensive that they can’t repeat it on their cable news network? Is this the same network that let’s Keith Olbermann’s misogyny sneak through when he called Michelle Malkin a “mashed up bag of meat with lipstick”?…

The clear intent here by MSNBC is to try to lessen the impact of the Liberal-Democrat Brown and his aides referring to a female as a “whore.” By bleeping out the word “whore” and merely writing the slur off as “salty language” they are attempting to make the story appear as merely an embarrassment for Brown rather than an example of his crude views toward both women and his political opponents.
