Is it self-censorship or an artistic choice if you chose to engage with the audience in a way that gets across to them whatever you want to get across to them?
Okay, so let's say that we've got a show that does involve death. Is it the focus of the show? The main theme of the story? Is what you're saying about death above the heads of your target audience? All these things can be valid reasons not to bring up death explicitly.
Also there are shows that
death without ever mentioning death by name, not because they're censoring but because no one is making death threats or the focus is on some other element of the story. Granted, I'm probably not talking about children's shows, but still.
