Why was Lisa's post about religion removed?

Original post made by Janna, Dublin, on Feb 20, 2009

Lisa made perfectly valid points and asked good questions. Why are you censoring her PW?

The above post appears to be a reference to the Fairness Doctrine, yet the removal of the post in question by the PW is an example of censorship by owner, not by government. Now the main difference is that Lisa is free to go open her own website and assert her freedom of speech because the Internet is rather infinite while Lisa would be unable to freely do so on the limited resource of the radio spectrum.

There was a misunderstanding and the post is now back up.
