Censorship is when the government forbids something.

This is more of a case of the boss (the editor) saying what will be in the
paper that he is charged with formulating every day.  It's not uncommon for
the editor to tell a columnist (or all of them) I want a peice on this
subject or that subject (such as an election aftermath peice)....or to say
that I think we've had TOO much coverage on this or that.

Since when do the employees tell the boss what they feel like doing for

Just my humble $.02.
