From Blokbuster....

Spineless American media outlets are not showing the pictures of the Muhammad cartoons potentially leading customers to not truly understanding the facts of the fuss. Again American media is not doing their job of giving us the news and letting us decide.

CNN pixilated the cartoons that set off a world wide Muslim temper tantrum. If the cartoons are a distortion of Muhammad then CNN has distorted a distortion. Guess we'll never know what all the fuss was about.

Most of the mainstream media in the U.S., other than Fox News, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the New York Sun, took a pass on showing the cartoons. Editor and Publisher has a story on the media refusal to publish the cartoons.

It seems little arrogant for a religion to demand that the whole world play by its rules. And a little wimpy for most of the American media to go along with it.

Christopher Hitchens considers the incident proof of "an aggressive intent".
Muslims are acting like animals, by rioting, threatening and destroying. All of this over a few cartoons that any sensible person, if they had a look at them, would think are fairly innocuous. What is particularly disturbing to me, is that people have told me that the Danes made a mistake printing the cartoons but admitted that they had not even seen cartoons when I asked where they had seen them. The American media again fails us horribly.
