Quite on the contrary:
To include a specific image in a specific article is part of the editing process.
Everyone can follow this process in the history of the article.

To filter it away without regard of the context is still regarded as censorship by serious journalists.
It doesn't make much difference if the censor is part of the government or the owner of the publishing house.
