Definition of censorship
Original post made by Censorship is, Stanford, on Oct 25, 2012
Bill Johnson says:
"But please don't use innuendo about our editing practices (which, by the way, is not "censorship"). "
Definition of censorship:
'Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body."
Note the inclusion of media outlet (now some people do not consider the weekly to be a "media outlet", but that is for another discussion.). Bill can say it is not censorship, but it is IMHO
My opinion is that the endorsements and the editing of discussions on said topics are carried out in the best interests of the Weekly and not the city as a whole.
