Apparently the Washington Post (both in print and in the online edition) has decided to spontaneously rename Penn&Teller’s Showtime series “Bullshit!” I wonder if they bothered to tell the producers?
I don’t have access here to the Chicago Manual of Style (which I believe the Post purports to follow) so I don’t know what the approved method of redacting an ‘offensive’ word might be (Bull—-? Bull****? Bulls*it?) but I am pretty sure that simply altering it – and leaving accuracy behind – isn’t it.
