Strangely Quiet: Apparently the TV show, 24, had to be purified for your protection. The series was criticized for depicting international terrorists as Middle Eastern, so the script was given a quick rewrite. This isn't the first time such a thing has happened. In the book, The Sum of All Fears, the terrorists are Muslim. In the movie, they were changed to Neo Nazis.

Pardon me, but Neo Nazis are not an international threat. They are a bunch of shaved-head hooligans who burn stuff and listen to bad music.

Evan Coyne Maloney notices that this isn't angering many of the Hollywood types who would spit fire if anyone else tried to alter the content of anything.

Tim "Chill Wind" Robbins cries censorship whenever anyone exercises their right to speak by criticizing Hollywood, but when the pressure groups come along to sanitize Hollywood's content, all the brave speakers sit silent.
These people wouldn't know real censorship if it were taped across their faces. Instead of protecting against possible censorship, they use the accusation as a tool to attack anyone who disagrees with them.
