the Blatant Hand of Censorship

On " Meet the Press" a camera was shoved away from a Colin Powell interview w Russert , who was alledgedly asking some touchy questions. Does it get any more blatant than that ?
That was pretty unprecedented. Russert was asking Powell a question about his UN testimony and the camera gets pushed aside. Moment of confusion. Tim says, "Mr. Powell, I believe that was your staff member and that is inappropriate." More confusion. Powell says, "Emily, get away." Camera returns. Interview ends
