Malaysiakini and Its Cow-Head Videos

I am reading this piece : 'Malaysiakini, don't be cowed by MCMC'

It seems that Somebody in Authority told Malaysiakini to take down the videos on the cow-head protest.

Isn't/Is this a form of internet censorship?

I believe there is not much for me to say after reading thist article from Haris Ibrahim :
Malaysiakini stands up to defy the oppressors . The words highlighted here are "with the intent of"

To summarise this, in my personal opinion, Malaysiakini is just doing its work as an online news site, displaying the videos and text in the spirit of journalism and intent of providing news to the public as it has done for many years.

For many years, Malaysiakini has been quite fair, providing news from both sides of the coin.

I, as well as many Malaysians, believe and support Malaysiakini. The videos are of importance to me. As a concerned Malaysian, I need to know what is happening.

On other news, I am not sure about Utusan, NST, sometimes, The Star but well, does MCMC check their "intention" as well? It is not really that hard to use common or cow sense to evaluate the situation, I believe.
