The secret Paulson-Goldman meeting
For f**k’s sake! Wilkinson thought. He and Treasury had had enough trouble trying to fend off all the Goldman Sachs conspiracy theories constantly being bandied about in Washington and on Wall Street. A private meeting with its board? In Moscow?
Excuse me, but that little four letter ‘f’ word just happen to sneak into the article, and I’m offended. Need I say more? Please advise the article’s writer to stop quoting offensive words.
This was posted in a blog on your Website. I’m not really sure if that was supposed to be there. If it is, then no problem, but it doesn’t seem a comment I would normally read off a news Website. Just wondering.
We don’t make a practice of using that word, as you can see from my version of the passage above. Our blogger, a member of our commentary team, was quoting from a book, and the decision was made to leave the word in, uncensored. I only saw one reader complaint on it: GBU Editor
