Antique muzzle for donkey – with harness
Juan R. Lascorz

“He’s not happy.”
“That’s an understatement.”
“He rang you?”
“Last night…”
“Said he’d dig up the dirt.”
“Who’d listen to him, only a go between. I wouldn’t worry.”
“What’s happening at your end?”
“It’s not pretty. ”
“Bet there’s a few running for cover.”
“No one’s making eye contact, if you know what I mean.”
“What’s next.”
“Nothing. We put a muzzle on it. Keep your head down and your mouth shut. It’ll blow over.”
“D’ya think?”
“They’ve no teeth. Just say nothin.”
“But the media…”
“Like I said, head down, mouth shut. Their hands are tied.”
“Who tied them?”
“That’d be telling!”
“Jeez you’re a fair man!”
“No flies on me, and if there are, they’re paying rent.”

Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body. It can be done by governments and private organizations or by individuals. It occurs in a variety of different contexts for a variety of reasons. It may or may not be legal. Many countries provide strong protections against censorship by law, but none of these protections are absolute and it is frequently necessary to balance conflicting rights in order to determine what can and cannot be censored.
Corporate censorship is the process by which editors in corporate media outlets intervene to disrupt the publishing of information that portrays their business or business partners in a negative light, or intervene to prevent alternate offers from reaching public exposure.
Political censorship ccurs when governments hold back information from their citizens. This is often done to exert control over the populace and prevent free expression that might foment rebellion.

  1. This is crazy! Realy makes you think about who is in charge of our economy! Scary stuff. I read this article a few days ago though and it gives me some hope that they’ll soon get to the bottom of it all!
