Censorship is when the Government shuts you up.
Oh, my bad.
So when a college newspaper (for example) prints something supporting a Conservative view, and the college communists run around and confiscate every single copy, that's not censorship.
Or when a Conservative speaker gets run off the stage anywhere in America, that's not censorship.
Or what the MSM does everyday, that's not censorship.
Okay, I think I got it.

No, you don't got it.

Words mean things. And "censorship" is when the government suppresses free speech.

Those other cases you cited are simply "suppression of free speech".
