How would the MSM cover an artist exhibition of a “Chocolate Mohammed” timed to coincide with Ramadan?
But find an artist to mock Jesus at Easter with a chocolate sculpture…
Where’s the MSM’s concern for avoiding deliberately provocative religious insults now?
“CNN has chosen to not show the cartoons in respect for Islam.”
“CNN is not showing the negative caricatures of the likeness of Prophet Mohammed because the network believes its role is to cover the events surrounding the publication of the cartoons while not unnecessarily adding fuel to the controversy itself.”
“They wouldn’t meet our standards for what we publish in the paper,” said Leonard Downie, Jr., executive editor of The Washington Post, which ran a front-page story on the issue Friday, but has not published the cartoons. “We have standards about language, religious sensitivity, racial sensitivity and general good taste.” …
At USA Today, deputy foreign editor Jim Michaels offered a similar explanation. “At this point, I’m not sure there would be a point to it,” he said about publishing the cartoons. “We have described them, but I am not sure running it would advance the story.” Although he acknowledged that the cartoons have news value, he said the offensive nature overshadows that.
The Boston Globe, while acknowledging the right of newspapers to print material that may offend, argues that “newspapers ought to refrain from publishing offensive caricatures of Mohammed in the name of the ultimate Enlightenment value: tolerance.”
In the land of media dhimmitude, tolerance is a one-way street.
