Islam already has the world’s media under pressure


Yesterday we heard that the BBC had pixelated the cartoons in their reports.

Our own NZ Herald had carefully redacted the cartoon from the image above.  “For space reasons”, I’m sure.  After all, the Internet is nearly full.

Here’s another weapons grade piece of pandering to Islam by a scared media, AP:

As reported through Breitbart, the Associated Press made clear that its official policy is to censor photos of the Prophet Muhammad. Apparently, though, disparaging images of Jesus Christ are acceptable.

The AP told The Daily Beast, “It’s been our policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately provocative images.” And because of that policy, the cartoons of Muhammad seen in the Charlie Hebdo magazine were deleted from its commercial photo service.

But as was discovered, the infamous “art” photo of a crucifix immersed in urine, known as “Piss Christ,” could be purchased online through the news organization.

Once this hypocrisy was made known by The Washington Examiner, AP took the purchase link down.

A screenshot of the broken link is provided below:


There is no consistency here.

Either it is offensive to offend religion, or it is not.

If you only redact when it comes to Islam, then you’re either a traitor or a coward.

Just because Christian fundamentalist won’t bomb the newsroom doesn’t mean you can freely offend them, while cowering under the hypocritical cloak of sanctimony when it comes to Islam.
