Censorship is wrong. (and I don’t refer to official censorship by the government but media censorship) Period. Please explain to me how they can show movie trailers like Saw III where people are tortured and hanging from hooks and they can’t show a movie trailer from a documentary? Feh! I don’t care what anyone’s personal feelings are about this movie, that’s not the important part. What is important is letting people decide for themselves, not letting the networks decide for us.
NBC is refusing to air the trailer for the Dixie Chicks’ documentary, “Shut Up and Sing” saying it “cannot accept these spots as they are disparaging to President Bush.” The CW Television Network claimed it does “not have appropriate programming in which to schedule this spot.”
So wait, it’s NBC’s job to censor all programming that disparages George Bush? That explains their news programs then.
You can view this dangerous trailer here (in case it’s not clear, I’m being sarcastic by calling it dangerous. Ideas are not dangerous. Perspectives are not dangerous)
