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!
It's not semantics when you get the definition wrong, it's just wrong. mlyonsd used "censorship" correctly in the thread title. Give the dictionary a try.
