Censorship and judgement: on those Mohammad Cartoons

Eric Mink, commentary editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, explains in a column today:
"If a government controls what can and cannot be distributed, it’s called censorship. If a media outlet decides for itself what to include and exclude from its products — whether for journalistic or economic reasons, out of respect for possible sensitivities of some readers or concern about possible impact on its community — it’s called editorial judgment."
