They certainly do! And Time/Warner was exercising
that right when they published "Cop Killers".

Heston took it upon himself to use the tactic of
PCness to stop Time/Warner from continuing to
associate with Ice-T. I have no qualms with
Time/Warner's actions or the actions of the Board of
Directors. My point is that Chuck used PCness and
BRAGGED about in an anti PC speech.

This is what makes PCness so powerful... when it is in
alightment with your (general case) own values, you
don't even think of it as "PCness". It's only when
your values are different from the current PC values
that it becomes "thought control".
