Definition of censorship

Definition of Censorship:

cen·sor·ship

noun \ˈsen(t)-sər-ˌship\

Act of changing or suppressing speech or writing that is considered subversive of the common good. In the past, most governments believed it their duty to regulate the morals of their people; only with the rise in the status of the individual and individual rights did censorship come to seem objectionable.


In the beginning

In the Beginning

  • Censorship came about in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Advertisers and networks considered the viewing audiences undifferentiated size of the population.

  • Broadcasters inevitably combined all of the viewers and created a broadcast structure based on the dominant values of white, middle class, Americans.
