Default CNN is chicken!

After reading the story of the offensive cartoon
about Mohammed I thought I'd get to SEE what
the rucus is all about!

CNN has decided not to publish the cartoon
as to not offend Muslims...

Like Jesus, Budduh, ect have never been lampooned!
It aggitates them so much Why?
What if they did a full movie about him they
didn't like? They're already burning things!
That's what we're fighting against!

The MSN site has had an article not showing the cartoon, but describing the offensive image in the cartoon. You would be able to draw a mental image of the caricature from the description in that article.

Yes I did read the description and did imagine it
but I'm thinking MY version would be MORE
offensive!

....And yet they have no "problem" discussing, showing or describing every OTHER "offensive" albeit boorish cartoon, "news worthy" story, etc... that comes down the pike.

Offensive....Whatever They're ALL a bunch of morons in my book.

I appreciate that they are not further publishing that cartoon. Whew! Would satisfying your curiosity -- your seeing the cartoon -- be worth the price of all the trouble that could follow from more publication? See what has happened already!
Oh, there ARE other subjects the major broadcasters consider absolutely off-limits when it comes to attempts at humor.

The problem is not those problems that could
follow but WHY such a violent reaction is needed or encouraged!
They've(the masses) got too much time on their hands and are easy fodder for manipulation. Fed a steady diet of anti US anti west since birth, violence is accepted
and encouraged as a way to "solve their problems" with the rest of the world!

And that is a shame, yes. But that is just the way it is. Such things have happened in our Country, too__remember the violence that erupted after the conclusion of the Rodney King police brutality trial?
In my opinion, the decision not to republish the inflammatory cartoon was a sound, responsible decision__to put it on display would be irresponsible, reckless__as they already know the possible consequences of republishing it.
We are indeed fortunate that our major news services are more sensitive than some elsewhere in the World to the fact that some sensational images should not be published, that respect for personal dignity should be valued above sensationalism.

This site has a few. What is the big deal. I have seen a lot worse in US papers of Presidents and public figures. "Hey Mohammed quit your whining!"

If trouble wasn't caused by the cartoons, they would find something else to blame their threats and violence on. All the more reason to stay the course.

They can deface our flag, say whatever they want about our religions, blow-up our citizens; but one little thing about them and they want to blow up the world. But we're the bigots. Go Figure. And given a chance they would probably want to move here. The Danes should stand thier ground and not act like CNN.

The answer is right here:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

It does not say "unless someone is offended"

Yes, that IS the answer. CNN and the other news organizations are free to have sensitivity considerations factor-into their decisions as to what they will broadcast here and around the World__to have a "taste test."

Funny that CNN had no problem showing the Rodney King video you referred to over & over ad nauseum but don't have the courage to show these cartoons.

They did not air any of the jokes that shortly followed the beating video. There is a difference, see. The violence was the news. The violence and protests about the cartoons are the news in this case.

Why is this violence OK?
These caricatures are satire, regardless of ones'
opinion of what tastelessness is.
Does this give them the right to burn buildings?

You have a right to your opinion- HERE!

over there?

CNN eat corn!

Surfergirl, the issue isn't whether or not it should be published, republished, broadcast, or tattoed on my dog's butt. The issue here is that so many muslims around the world are becoming so entrenched in this defensive posture that is responded 99 times out of 100 with violence.

Actually, that violent response is what is so ironic about the cartoon begin with - IT'S TRUE!

Now that violence and irrational reaction by muslims to something that is obviously a political satire cartoon is what is the news.. and is also what is so scary about this islamic movement that is going on.

If you made the same about Jesus, sure you would have some verbal protest, but you wouldn't have buildings burning down and media scrambling to protect themselves..

I guess we do not take our religion seriously enough like they did during the good old days during the Inquisitions. Maybe that is what we need to counter the crap from the Middle East, start a modern day version of the Inquisition .... except this time we will be packing MOAB's and other pleasantries.
