It appears Andy Stevens comments at the News and Record only appear to Andy Stevens

Pontius Pilate was the first great censor,
and Jesus Christ the first great victim of censorship.

Saw this, so I went to the article to see what Andy wrote;
And found this;
Andy sent me this, showing 5 comments instead of 4, which my view showed;

Are the most convincing lies mostly true?

If you choose not to know something,
especially if that something is something you should know,
you are morally blameworthy.

Robert P. Lawry
Director of the Center for Professional Ethics

Can truth be a casualty of social instability?

Without censorship,
things can get terribly confused in the public mind.

William Westmoreland
American military commander, Vietnam, 1964 - 1968
US Army Chief of Staff, 1968 - 1972

Does thinking you understand what another says
mean you hear what they mean?

He who wishes to deceive will never fail to find willing dupes.

Niccolo Machiavelli

Prior restraint or prior censorship eliminates certain material from being published or communicated.

In Greensboro, North Carolina, the government and/or the news industry prevents controversial information from being disseminated to the public.

I believe “Freedom of the Press” is the right to be free from prior restraint.

I believe Greensboro doesn't have a free press.

How to purchase politicians without most knowing it; Roy Carroll's propensity to mislead on campaign donation reporting

Those who do not accept the fundamental principles of state propaganda,
are simply excluded from the debate.
(or if noticed, dismissed as "emotional," "irresponsible," etc…)

Noam Chomsky

Greensboro Performing Arts Censorship

If they can get you asking the wrong questions,
they don't have to worry about answers.

Thomas Pynchon

What the News & Record's Allen Johnson chose not to tell 72,649 [at the time] Sunday circulation recipients before the primary; Skip Alston, Alma Adams, Earl Jones, Yvonne Johnson and the Simkins PAC

Do some think many know more than they ought to?

A Comparison of Hartzman's Yes Weekly Column on the Civil Rights Museum and the News and Record's

Is an untruth disseminated as true a lie ,
if the truth remains un-found through in-curiosity?

Marty Kotis Propaganda from the Business Journal "Plans for east Guilford retail center could lead to more development"

That an opinion has been widely held,
is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd.

Is there a correlation between behavior
and information consumption?

Should information be evaluated by origin and relative legitimacy?

How to "lift" a news story from a local blogger, by the News and Record's Amanda Lehmert and Jeff Gauger

foreign ideas, alien philosophies and competitive values.

For a nation afraid to let its people judge truth and falsehood,
…is a nation afraid of its people.

John F Kennedy

Is the GPAC Task Force Using a Push Poll"

If Greensboro’s City Council, the Rhino and the Greensboro News & Record can control information dissemination to benefit a select few instead of the many…?

Is it hard to get entrenched economic and political leadership to understand,
if relative legitimacy depends on not understanding?

When spider webs unite,
they can tie up a lion.

Ethiopian proverb

What if what you’ve been told to think isn’t?

"Prior restraint or prior censorship is censorship
in which certain material may not be published or communicated...

Prior restraint prevents the censored material from being heard or distributed at all...

Prior restraint often takes the form of an order
prohibiting the publication of a specific document or subject.

Sometimes, a party becomes aware of a forthcoming publication on a particular subject
and seeks to prevent it: to halt ongoing publication and prevent its resumption.

...“Freedom of the Press” is defined as the right to be free from prior restraints.

Thus it is often considered to be the most extreme form of censorship.

A prior restraint, by contrast and by definition,
has an immediate and irreversible sanction."
