A couple of day ago on CNN, a former radio talk show host (can't recall his name) who has recently been suspended for offensive language regarding Jews, said in an interview that the powers that be are now trying to nip offensive radio language "in the but(t)".  Is this interpretation of "nip in the bud" an eggcorn? I had not heard this use before.
