Re: Why is KC IndyMedia Being Censored by Chuck Munson?

chuck, i looked up "censor" in a dictionary and got this as the main entry:

to examine in order to suppress or delete anything considered objectionable

I do not believe censorship is only the domain of government or can only be practiced by government officials. many non-governmental groups censor without calling what they are doing censoring or having a written policy as such. anytime someone in a position of power/authority in the group controls the information in order to keep people from drawing conclusions or opinions that the censor does not believe they should have, this i believe falls under censorship.

conforming censorship to preset guidlines does not make it not censorship, it just makes it censorship with guidelines. whether your censorship was justified or not (i.e. conformed to the guidelines) is another discussion.
