They probably removed it for the same reason Channel 4
the image when they showed it - they are less idealistic than we are
and prefer a quiet life. For Amazon, I completely support that, they
exist to sell stuff, they have no reason to get involved in a
censorship debate. I was a little disappointed (although not
surprised) that Channel 4 News didn't stand up for themselves and show
the image (after consulting with their own legal team) so viewers
could make up their own minds about whether or not it should be on
Wikipedia - censorship is as big an issue for the press as it is for
The guy had it on his computer in the background. I wonder if anyone
will report the URL for the Channel 4 news "play again" to the IWF.
