Courageous MSM Outlet of the Day: Washington Post

Gee, when it’s something that might make me angry, I’m told that freedom of expression is the cornerstone of our great nation and to just put up with it, but some cornerstones obviously carry more weight than others:

“Non Sequitur” is a popular comic that runs daily in about 800 newspapers, including this one. But the “Non Sequitur” cartoon that appeared in last Sunday’s Post was not the one creator Wiley Miller drew for that day.

Editors at The Post and many other papers pulled the cartoon and replaced it with one that had appeared previously. They were concerned it might offend and provoke some Post readers, especially Muslims.
[…]
Still, Style editor Ned Martel said he decided to yank it, after conferring with others, including Executive Editor Marcus W. Brauchli, because “it seemed a deliberate provocation without a clear message.” He added that “the point of the joke was not immediately clear” and that readers might think that Muhammad was somewhere in the drawing.

Miller is fuming. The award-winning cartoonist, who lives in Maine, told me the cartoon was meant to satirize “the insanity of an entire group of people rioting and putting out a hit list over cartoons,” as well as “media cowering in fear of printing any cartoon that contains the word ‘Muhammad.'”

Here’s the cartoon — oh the horror:

null

Do you think the Post knows that they did nothing but help make the point? Wiley seems to understand that. The WaPo suits are probably still hunched over this cartoon trying to find Muhammad though.

If Wiley Miller wants to make sure the WaPo allows his cartoons to run in the future, he should start making light of disabled soldiers and Christianity more and never again mention the name… well… you know who.
