    South park was changed by their owners, not censored.
    Censorship indicates action by a governmental entity.

    Spin on though.

    Censorship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    there is also the definition of self-censorship:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-censorship this censorship does not seem to fall in this category though "without an authority directly pressuring one to do so"

    welcome to the world of censorship ;)

    Your title says censored by Muslims. Your provided definitions fail to support that assertiion.

    I do stand corrected on my perception of censorship definitions though.


    South Park Self-censored by Comedy Central would have been a proper title.

    As I said spin on.

    Not true, because it is indirectly censored by muslims: It is the media that censored it because muslims threatened them. If we take out the muslim aspect: would the media still censor it? => cause and effect



    Also what this media corporation did was just unamerican, not worthy to be an american company. Since when is there a precondition that free speech & free press can only be allowed if not being threatened? If this is "the rule" then it may be better to bann free speech & free spress all at once, since in that case we (as a society) wouldn't be such big hyppocrites.

    They wanted to keep their heads. That's understandable.

    So next time I threaten you, you will do whatever I want? Is that understandable?


    You also find it understandable that our troops in afghanistand & Iraq are shot down because they want to defend your rights of free speech and have some "embarrassing US company" just throw those rights down the toilet?

    The creators of the south park cartoons (Matt & Trey) talking about "how they (don't) like it to be censored":
