Control is more subliminal that the outright black and white of censorship. There is a line the whereabouts of which journalists, and especially editors, understand; consciously and subconsciously. This line may change, situation to situation, but ignore it and doors close forever. Constantly ignore it and pressure will be applied in a variety of ways, blatantly or not. Not one writer, one paper, one judge, one president, one nation, or one half of the world is likely to make a change to this truth.
