Today our society has developed so much making it easy for people to access media. We are exposed to media through television, computers, and any other form of portal digital devices. As viewers from all different ages are exposed to various types of media, media censorship has been more apparent in some situations. Media contents are censored at times because it is too violent or because it is inappropriate for certain age groups. However, sometimes media censorships seem too extreme and questions to until where we have to censor media contexts have been asked for a very long time.
