Well Yes, But Actually No Meme | image tagged in memes,well yes but actually no | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
🤔 If what is being published is untrue but is portrayed as fact and is designed to or could cause harm then possibly.

Be wary of opinions expressed as fact or misquoting facts to fit a narrative as this is the structure of most propaganda.

Peace.

Tuxedo Winnie The Pooh Meme | A load of bollocks Fake news disguised as opinion | image tagged in memes,tuxedo winnie the pooh | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Social media has become the perfect tool to facilitate propaganda. Opinions however outlandish they might be will be eaten given you find the right echo chamber to target.

Too many journalists and media commentators are getting away with Advocacy under the guise of 'opinion'.

Why sensor something you hate when you can just let everyone else see how bad it is, so that it can get its well-deserved ridicule?

Yes. Just as free speech doesn't not cover inciting violence or panic, censorship can and should be used in the same cases.

WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE RIGHT ALL OF THE TIME? | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
I agree, there are times when censorship is necessary. Kids use this site making it necessary for explicit content to be appropriately managed. Anything that incites violence or hatred should of course be censored. Words and images can yield dangerous consequences to individuals who take them at face value. Of course censorship is also abused to silence those with conflicting opinions.

Additionally private forums can censor as it is private. Only governments must defend censorship when it is used.

To prevent mass hysteria, yes.

In the 1950's one such incident was when there was a popular Sci Fi radio program show that one day, pretended that there was a nation-wide emergency alert: "Aliens are invading". Complete with realistic BGM I believe, that included gun fire and explosions, people began to run wildly.

I don't know how many have been injured or have died because of it.

Government-led censorship, no.

Parental censorship, such as internet filters to keep their kids from wandering just anywhere online, more often than not, yes.

We show kids Snow White the failed child murder story.. don't we? lol There is Gothel the narcissist who isolates and gaslights Rapunzel? Sleeping Beauty is another attempted child murder and Maleficent is the Devil. Why not let kids see Rated R movies? lol No.. some things they are not ready to know.. and censorship along with stylized violence is the only way to go.

What one finds inappropriate is subjective. So I suppose it would be difficult to enforce an effective universal standard of censorship. I think the only kind of censorship people find a common ground on is what content is appropriate for children. 🤔
