I definitely have memories of the newspaper in the closest city to me printing full quotations without censoring words. They seem to have stopped that when they got bought by Sun Media. The local TV news still occasionally airs stories without bleeping what someone said. They usually give a "strong language" warning just before though.
I'd much prefer they just print the actual quote. Printing that someone "used a derogatory phrase for a homosexual man" can mean a lot of things. The specific words used can make a huge difference in meaning. "Knob-gobbler", "cocksucker", and "fucking queer" all mean different things.
