I think your statement makes a lot of sense and you correctly point out the difference between state-sponsored and private censorship. However, there is still something rather ignoble about it. It has been a long time since Disney was a family-owned, innovative studio in Hollywood. The company is a huge entity encompassing a great deal of broadcast and media assets. Sure, it's not Uncle Sam, but it still yields a great deal of power and influence. And that makes the slippery slope all the more slippery. Can Disney do it? Sure. No question. Should they? Debatable.
