Writer's Block: This material has been censored

Do you think the government should have the right to censor the media? If you're generally against censorship, are there any circumstances under which you feel it might be warranted?

I don't believe any government has the ethical right to directly limit expression.  I do believe that hateful and threatening expression should be usable as supplementary/character evidence when a crime has been committed, but that it in itself does not constitute concrete evidence of any crime.  I believe that people have the right to find reasonable means of pressuring others into honesty in the case that said others are making deliberately false statements, though I also believe that direct and diplomatic contact with said others should be made before jumping to peer pressure and legal action, and that it shouldn't be assumed said others are making false statements deliberately if they are even making false statements at all.  Claims should be substantiated with material evidence as well as direct diplomatic contact as hasty reactions are almost always bad ones.
