The Washington Post certainly has a right to "censor" its own content, and what happened here was people asking the WP not to publish what they think is false information.
If people telling a newspaper it shouldn't publish something false is suppressing free speech what is telling those people that they shouldn't make the request? Howard Kurtz, Fox, and Charles Krauthammer hate free speech!
