The Finger! (ooh, I'm so offended... heh)

The greatest thing about this article is not the fact that the guy gave the finger to the Brazilians (actually I think that was pretty rude and stupid of him) but the fact that they have a picture of it that's not blurred out! I love the British news media....

Which brings me to a question: why do we blur that sort of thing out here in America? It's a finger. If you're watching it on TV or seeing it in the newspaper, you know it's not directed at you personally. So why get offended? I'm sure this falls under the realm of free speech/freedom of the press somewhere.
