Finally this Sunday the highly-anticipated Michael Jordan/Chicago Bulls documentary Last Dance airs. Now comes word that there will be two different versions airing, one with curing and one without. Per Variety...
quote:

ESPN plans to air two versions of the ten-part project: one, with all the athletes’ rough language intact, will air on the company’s flagship cable network; the other, with profanity edited out, will air simultaneously on ESPN2. “We take a lot of pride in sports as a communal viewing experience. All members of the family get to watch this,” says Connor Schell, executive vice president of content at ESPN, in an interview. “We felt this was the right thing to do.” Hearing the unedited interviews, he adds, “makes it feel more honest and more authentic and raw.”

Why do we need to hear from Nas, Carmen Electra, Timberlake, or Obama though?

Obama is a pretty prominent Chicagoan. Electra was banging Rodman. If you're gonna do a ten part series you kinda have to have a lot of interviews.
