The article reports on the suspension of the episodes of the television program "Dog the Bounty Hunter," after the main star of the show Duane Chapman repeatedly used the racial n-word. Chapman was heard using the n-word several times in a telephone conversation with his son, Tucker. Tucker apparently recorded the phone call he had with his father and sold it to the "Enquirer."
