SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

censor (noun) a person with the power to remove objectionable portions from a movie or a book.

A censor is an official who has the power to order the removal of, or ban, offensive, objectionable, and politically dangerous material from books or movies. A censor also has the power to read letters sent or received by soldiers. Movies are allowed to be shown to the public only after they pass the censors. Books found to have objectionable material which is obscene or which might encourage readers to rise against the government, may be banned or the objectionable portions removed in them, by the censor.

  • Standards of morals, public behavior, etc., vary from country to country, so what the censors in one country find as objectionable may be approved by the censors in another country.
  • The editor of a newspaper or a magazine often acts as a censor, as they may remove any portion in any article sent to them for publication, if in their opinion, such a portion is objectionable or offends the sentiments of their readers.
