Exercise in Cognitive Dissonance

Do you think it was socially acceptable for Tricky Dick II to use the four-letter word that begins with the fifth letter of the alphabet?

Do you think it is socially acceptable for a documentary filmmaker to make a film that is openly critical of the President of the United States?

If you answered yes to one, but no to the other, why is it that one is OK but the other is not?
