I find this very interesting. Here George Orwell complains about the UK media as being self-censoring and overly centralised in ownership - far from needing government intervention the industry simply decides that certain topics "won't do" (the example in this case being criticism of Stalin during WW2) for discussion and those who step outside of this agreement are silenced (presumably with a swift reduction in column inches rather than by other means)
