MPAA censorship enforces government doctrine.

Curiously, the MPAA allowed lots of severed body parts in posters for Saw IV, but objected to a hood over the head in a poster for a documentary about government-sanctioned torture. Secret agenda? I think so.

This poster for “Taxi To The Dark Side,” a documentary about the U.S. government’s use of torture, is what the MPAA is protecting our children’s tender eyes from.

Because of the hood.

But — the MPAA assures us — their standard is reasonable, because if that “Saw IV” poster had had a hood over the severed head, they would have rejected it too.

Sure, this is a heavily-biased and one-sided article that makes its point in questionable fashion. But I hate the MPAA anyway, so there ya go.
