Censorship has become a massive issue in media around the world. Governments and large businesses can threaten and blackmail smaller outlets into only writing positive things about them. Pressure from larger businesses can cause writers to remove details from their stories, or delete the stories all together. Censorship is a big issue, because when companies remove details from stories, it can change the meaning of the story completely. Many governments censor lines from stories that criticize them, this can give the illusion to readers, that the government is doing everything it can to help them. Censorship is not just a problem for writers, several musicians have also had some of their lyrics censored even on the explicit version of their albums. The secret service has forced several artists to censor lyrics that negatively talk about the president or government. Musicians like Lady Gaga, Eminem, and YG have all had some of their lyrics censored by the government. I believe the government is right to censor some of these lyrics as some could be interpreted as threats against the president. The government can force music labels to censor whatever they want. However, I believe, that the government should not censor lyrics unless they incite violence or terroristic threats. An article about censorship.
