Living in America – home of the supersized french fries, 24 hr supermarkets and endless, instant forms of media, I think it is easy to forget how other countries live.  I have seen this story all over the internet today.  I was intrigued by it for two reasons.  The first is that it is a case of government censoring media.  The second was that the media being censored is pictures of Mariah Carey.  Apparently, Americans don’t mind the censorship of war.  Yahoo Trendings isn’t showing me that there is an uproar over a photo shopped picture of a fallen soldier, printed in the New York Times. But pretend to dress Mariah in something a bit less revealing? Woo. No way!
