    CRY “CENSORSHIP!” A pro-Israeli group has been buying ads in college student newspapers that depict Palestinians in a less than flattering light. Students have protested the ads and some papers have refused to run them.

    “Calling for the censorship of advertisements is a flagrant violation of the freedoms of our great nation, and is further indication of the vile hatred of America that exists within the Palestinian community,” Dorfman said.

    I don’t think this qualifies as censorship, which is a government act. The newspaper, for all intents and purposes, is an independent “business” which can certainly choose to run or not run advertisements depending on their readership’s interests.
