I find that if we censor the public from things going on in our world today we will never know what real changes need to be made. Our children of today need to know how to fix the problems going on in our world. If we censor our news and the media lies to us we will never know who to trust.

You have a point, but the censorship is likely happening because of possible traumatizing that could happen with not just children, but even adults. The reason they even do this is that they don't receive backlash from people about how, for example, their news made someone depressed and they suicide. Its a rather selfish effort, only worrying about themselves, but its what I personally think is going through their heads.

That is very true but if we do not show everything on the news how will we fix any problems. Yes some people may find the uncensored news very depressing or offensive but they have the right not to watch it. We don't force people to watch the news. We can also have different news channels ones that are censored for the more sensitive viewer's. But for people like me ( as a young teen) find that we should be able to know everything so we may fix the problems going on in our world.

Yes, but some people's curiosity will get the best of them and they'll file lawsuits anyway claiming its their fault. Before you say the court would be in favor of the news, there have been some cases where that's been the opposite and the unlikely has happened. Kudos to you though for being worried about our current issues, not many teens really care about them.

They are trying to encourage the american populace, thought the idea of just putting some good things on the news once in a while.

Censor has many different meanings: Do you mean things that they don't give the whole story of or things that do not make it onto the news, period?

They do not put some things onto the new, because they don't want to completely give the bad points because that would bring down the spirit of the American Nation
For instance, what would you feel if you saw this on the news (not necessarily a true story)

"A soldier comes home with nothing to eat and nowhere to sleep. The head shack of the military coorperations have announced that they are cutting funding to the american veteran's program".

There is nothing that you can reallt do about this so they are trying to not bring your expectations of a great america down.
