This paper relates that, while the censoring of articles appearing in a high school newspaper is, no doubt, intended to protect the readers from the gruesome details of reality, whether this protection actually works when these gruesome details are all over television, radio and the Internet, is debatable. The paper acknowledges that the censorship is aimed to reduce the negative impact the cruel reality might have on teenagers, by making them focus on the scholarly features presented in the high school newspaper, but then questions whether this objective is actually achieved. Specifically, the writer of the paper argues that, in fact, censoring articles in the high school newspaper does not protect students and, instead, narrows the minds of both readers and writers by enclosing them in a world free of crime.
