Censorship is a violation of the human right to free expression and a serious offence to democracy. For obvious reasons, governmental bodies that suffocate opinion by controlling editorial content are internationally condemned. A much less debated but frequently practiced way of confining freedom of expression is done by journalists themselves. Self-censorship is widespread. Instead of developing their critical approach to governments in the power, they become hypersensitive to political climates and unspoken rules.
