I'm all for FREE SPEECH, but..

The National Coalition Against Censorship is holding a video contest called "I'm all for Free Speech, but..." which is asking the question is there anything that should be outlawed in art, films, books, music, video games, school, TV or online?  Lynn and I are asking Grand Rapidians the same question.

it is a great thing that everybody has the right to free speech... in regards to some sources of that free speech, i just wish i didn't have to hear it, hear about it, or even know it exists sometimes. I may hate FOX news, the Koran burning church, and lady gaga... but censorship? 

couldn't i just charge them a fee for noise pollution everytime i am exposed to it against my will?

if i had to choose something to censor... SPIN. not telling the whole truth in "news" or company PR, or from the government should be a good candidate
