A Star Is Born

This article presents information on issues related to voluntary self-censorship. The author opines that of all the forms of press censorship, an unspoken agreement between newspaper editors to exercise voluntary self-censorship is the most sinister. The author refers to a documentary film about the private life of Princess Anne, a member of the British Royal family, and Captain Mark Phillips, husband of Princess Anne, which was aired on television. The qualities of gracelessness and charmlessness portrayed in that memorable film were of an epic order in themselves.
