Government censorship

I'm not sure what is most worrying. The government's inclination to censorship where it may cause them embarrassment, or that they thought they would get away with it.

Some people tell me that the reason that governments should have a fair deal of control over their citizens is because many of those citizens are too stupid to work things out for themselves (might have paraphrased that a bit). How does attempting censor on one area in a country with a fair, free and inquisitive press make government inherently intelligent?
