The Censorship of Television - Harvard University
The Humpty Dumpty Censorship of Television in India | The Wire
Data for the study came from face-to-face interviews with 506 randomly selected Singaporeans who evaluated ten categories of ‘sensitive’ television content. Results revealed (1) a substantial perceptual bias in all content categories; (2) generally strong opinion favoring censorship of television content; and (3) a significant relationship between these two factors, suggesting that people may support censorship of media in part because of a tendency to overestimate its negative influence.

Many people feel that censorship is a violation of Freedom of Speech...Bull feathers...Censorship is NOT unconstitutional. Censors have the right to censor what you hear. The Bill of Rights says nothing about Freedom of Hearing. This, of course, takes alot of the fun out of the Freedom of Speech. Ha, ha, ha...Without censorship of television, how else can you, the American public, have the protection you want from vulgar scenes, over-exposed bodies and all the other sights you like to see...There is nothing in the Bill of Rights about Freedom of Seeing. You can look for it, but if you see it, you'd better not show it to anybody.
