censorship phenomenon


A term referring to the observation that advertising revenue-dependent media sources (magazines, newspapers, radio, TV) sold or disseminated to the general public are “persuaded” to limit discussion of a particular health issue–e.g., smoking, fast food consumption, etc., in the media source’s content (articles published, programmes aired, discussions), out of concern that the source would lose a revenue stream from an advertiser displeased with articles or sound-bites that target its products as unhealthy
