You can read the German source version of the article, or the English translation.

A CCC made Apple TV App for displaying CCC-talks may not be released on the platform. According to Apple the app is in breach of developer terms and conditions because it enables access to content of which the company disapproves: Apple criticizes that the CCC's app allows watching publicly given talks, which among others deal with security holes in the widely used Bluetooth technology, or help "jailbreaking" Apple devices - enabling the use of applications that have not been approved by Apple. The talks criticized by Apple are all available under the website media.ccc.de and can also be watched through the Apple TV YouTube app, which is not criticized by Apple.

Still feel comfortable with letting Apple police the news you read?

As far as I know child pornography (and sometimes even pornography) is illegal in most civilized countries around the world. I haven't tried, but I'm pretty sure there is no such thing to be found on the "non-blocking" pillar of liberty (you know, because Google), Youtube?

How do you explain this "reprehensible policy" and obvious intrusion into you personal freedoms?

This is the result of laws made by representatives of the people. Not the decision of some random guy in an american private company.
