Play the Dixie Chicks, lose your job:

Country station KKCS has suspended two disc jockeys for playing the Dixie Chicks, violating a ban imposed after the group criticized President Bush.

[snip]

The station has received a couple of hundred calls and 75 percent favored playing the music.

The DJs are willing to play music by the biggest country group in America, the people want to hear it and the band's concerts are selling out. So why are the Chicks -- and their supporters -- still being punished, exactly? If (as some have argued) it's not censorship, what is it?
