Your mistake, in logic and understanding, is to believe that two things to which the same word may be applied are equivalent. Obviously, this is incorrect.
Take two things, a red car and a red herring. According to your logic, since the word 'red' applies to both, they are the same. But, clearly a red car is very different from a red herring, and a red herring is very different from a red car.
So, two instances of "censorship", but two very different cases. Apple is being honest and transparent. CR is being dishonest and deceptive. Thus, even though the same term applies to both cases, they are only similar in the most superficial and meaningless way. While you may not see the distinction, or choose to ignore it, it's rather obvious to anyone with an intelligent interest that there is no commonality in the cases, and that your claim that Apple does it too, is not only mistaken in the particular, but very much not a red car, but that other red thing.
