Internet Censorship
When the government first developed the Internet for military purposes, they had no idea that by the time the nineties came around, nearly everyone in the world would have access to a world wide web of information.

Censorship
I did my report on the First Amendment. The First Amendment of the United States states that, "Congress shall make no law against the freedom of speech, nor of the press."

They see that they are preserving the values that the the entire society should take in to ...

Censorship
Censorship is the act of supirvising and controlling the information and ideas circulated within a society.( ) Although certain precautions are taken place, are viewers still subjected to the offensive material and immoral thoughts being displayed on local radio stations? “Bleeping” a line out of a sentence or a song is used so that the nation can feel secure and free of obscene thoughts.

Censorship
In the First Amendment to the Constitution, amongst other things it guarantees freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of association (assembly).

Freedom of speech is a right that we, as Americans, fought long and hard for two hundred years ago.

Censorship
“Can They Say That On Television?" Yes, they can, and increasingly they do. The days of television being highly regulated, pure and decent may be over. It looks as if the ever-shifting rules governing what's okay to say on television are made to be broken. The amount of violence, vulgarity, and sexual content that can be found at 8:00 P.M. or afterwards this year on television is unprecedented in the history of broadcasting. Many people wonder how television could have sunk to such a low l...

Censorship
The written word is mankind s oldest form of recorded information. It has allowed us to read about ideas and events of times long past.

Using a printing press, anyone had the ability to record and distribute his or her ideas. The printed word became a powerful force for democra...

Television programs should be censored based on content, the time slot it will be showing, and the audience that will be viewing it. The first part of television that should be e...

Music And Censorship
In our society today, some musicians and their music drain and plague the moral and spiritual well-being of the people; therefore, censorship offers a necessary action that we must take to keep the world from becoming a land of decadence.

Censorship makes a person realize that music is good for the heart. Censorship totally ma...

Censorship
Censorship by definition is the suppression of published or broadcast material to the public. People have fought and died for the right to hear, read, and see anything and everything that is available. But our right goes beyond that, we have the full right to publish and broadcast material, even though it is controversial. This is not for pleasure, but for the right of knowledge for us and for the people who would like to learn. The more information we know, the more we know about how to do thin...

Students may be allowed to dig up as much information as they’d like for an article, but that doesn’t mean that it will be allowed to print it. Schools all over the world are cutting out articles, words, names and just not allowing the paper to be circulated around the school, for the reason that they are scared. Schools believe that by allowing students complete freedom of press, will result in a lawsuit. In Hazelwood School District v. Kuhlmeier the principal was unhappy with two articl...

Censorship
Censorship is berated and attacked verbally by proponents of freedom of expression. Yet these same individuals seek solutions to the problems needling society. A cause is always sought after and more often than not one of its causes, “the freedom of expression,” particularly in television, is not given enough consideration. Our “free speech” and our decisions to act and behave according to how we see fit is covered under the (#) Amendment(s). However, the First Amendment is not an excuse...
