70. Yes, if it were up to me
I would have restricted broadcast criticisms of Bush and his Government. It's a bad idea to BROADCAST in a (hostile) foreign country anti-American messages. I would have as much problem with B'casting Keith Olberman as Rush Limbaugh. Both are still available on-line, and I would not support restrictions on what a member of the military can access on-line. And because Rush is still producing and legitimately available to you on-line, it is not censorship.

*BTW, do you get every show that is broadcast on the air in the states? Is EVERY show that is offered available to you? Someone decides what makes the cut and what doesn't. That doesn't make it censorship.
