I just looked at my archives of the show and sure enough the word "fagot" is still there and that's not all. In the original show, Artie also says "you are gay and faggot" but it got taken out of the replay today.
"Robin read a story about the FCC and the TV networks fight over fleeting use of expletives. Right now the networks are subject to $300,000 fines. Now they're in court fighting about it. The Supreme Court is going to be hearing the case now. That led to Fred playing Iron Sheik ''You are gay and faggot'' audio clips. Howard said that all he knows is that he's out of that game."
It's bad enough we don't get any live shows with good comedy bits, or any fun guests, now the funny segments from old shows get censored? Stern really is giving a big FU to his dwindling loyal listeners
Based on this Howard Stern precedent the publishers of the new editions of Tom Sawyer and Huckelberry Finn have decided that the the frequent use of the term "nigger" in each novel will be replaced with "fine upstanding African-American male". It is believed that first time readers of these Mark Twain American classics will be better off than previous 10,000,000+ readers these past 5 generations.
What's much worse is that someone noticed he also censors out insults to celebrities he's now "friends" with
its such a joke. I seriously doubt his newfound respect for the lgbt community. He never actually apologized for what he said (just pretends he never did it and that he was never a bigoted piece of shit) and he mocked trans people awhile ago
