Beware of censors


Jewish date:   1 Nisan 5771 (evening) (Parashath Meṣora‘).

Today’s events:  Hug a Newsman Day, School Librarian Day, Walk Around Things Day, Tell a Lie Day, National Repot your Plant Day, National Reading a Roadmap Day, International Day for Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action (UN).
    Today’s weird thing is “Prime Time TV Censorship”:

    funny graphs and charts

    The graph correctly notes the inconsistencies in TV censorship in the United States.  I am not clear how harmful seeing any of the things in the graph on TV really are, but the fairly lenient treatment violence gets is pretty odd.  Enjoy and share the weirdness.
