Censorship

Submission + - Year's Top Censors Receive Muzzle Awards (tjcenter.org)

Waldo Jaquith writes: "We've all heard the stories of outlandish censorship over the past year. The student who was expelled from Valdosta State University for criticizing the school on Facebook. New York state refusing to let somebody have a 'GETOSAMA' license plate. The judge who barred a rape victim from using the word "rape" in her testimony. The FCC. Period. Well, they and ten others are all getting their comeuppance, in the form of the Thomas Jefferson Center's 17th annual Jefferson Muzzle Awards. The dubious distinction goes to those organizations who have done the most to stifle free expression in the past year. The FCC, appropriately enough, got a lifetime achievement award."
