If you google "Tianamen Square" in China, "no result" pops up. Stateside, the FCC doesn't want you to hear George Carlin saying certain words on the radio or see Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunctions, whereas violent movies and video games have been generally tolerated. How does limiting access to information shape you? And, who's watching the watchers? Our uncensored panel will discuss who decides what we hear, if they can be trusted, and what we can do about it.

Time: 6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. program, 7:30 p.m. networking reception
Cost: $12 members, $20 non-members, $7 students (with valid ID)
