Does family or religion lead you to self-censor?
Though governments are often to blame for controlling the media, censorship can come from a variety of societal culprits.
In many regions of the world, a journalist's personal background and place in society has a profound effect on what he/she feels comfortable publicly reporting.
Menassat, a Web site devoted to exploring Arab media, recently pointed to censorship from religion and family as major factors in the freedom of Arab journalists, especially young journalists. Traditional gender roles may too affect reporting, the article said.
What are the factors in your society that cause you to self-censor? Has family or religion ever impacted what you chose to report - or not report?
