The American Library Association: Thriving on Made-Up Censorship

The Wall Street Journal had a great article today about how the American Library Association’s “Banned Books Week” is built on a myth.  They’re promoting something way out of context, especially when statistics show that the vast majority of requests to remove books from libraries are about parental concerns about age-appropriate books for children.  And yet they’ve built a $54 million empire trying to convince us that they know more about what’s appropriate for our children than we do.  Read the article.  More people need to know the truth.
