The controlling organization of the works of Dr. Seuss decided to remove 6 titles including the classics “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo.” They make this proclamation on his birthday.

Our today’s The Logan Sekulow ReProgram we go beyond Dr. Seuss and deep dive into what this kind of self censorship can mean for the future of media. When everything is digital - burning a book turns quickly into a deletion from the cloud.

How this is similar to Gina Carano in the Mandalorian, Gone with the Wind, The Muppet Show, Woody Allen and more.

Question: What’s a lesser of two evils - digital alteration of an offensive image or complete removal of a work?
