Apparently 12 people were killed because of this

The question is, will other Western media outlets show solidarity with Charlie Hebdo by lifting their self-imposed ban on showing images (satirical or otherwise) of the Prophet Mohammed?

Update: not promising: @Yair_Rosenberg notes that The Telegraph is blurring out Charle Hebdo‘s depictions of Mohammed.

I’m wondering which Western news writer will be the first to say Charlie Hebdo brought this upon itself, and how long that person has written for The Guardian.

Flashback: in 2009, Yale University Press published a book about the controversial Mohammed cartoons commissioned by a Danish newspaper – but would not reprint the cartoons in the book. (Via @Will_Antonin)

I distinctly remember The New York Times illustrating  a story about that cartoon controversy with a picture of…Piss-Christ.

One thought on “Apparently 12 people were killed because of this

  1. If the media cowards had reprinted the 2005 cartoons en masse, the Charile massacre would probably not have occurred. Even the most hardcore muslim loons know that they can’t silence every news source. But it’s a lot easier to do when there are only a few left willing to stand up for freedom of speech.
