Good Shot, Sir!

        Tim Blair nails the press's reaction to Islamofascists:
        Major American newspapers, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune, did not publish the caricatures.  Representatives said the story could be told effectively without publishing images that many would find offensive ...

        Most television news executives made similar decisions.  On Friday CNN ran a disguised version of a cartoon, and on an NBC News program on Thursday, the camera shot depicted only a fragment of the full cartoon.  CBS banned the broadcast of the cartoons across the network, said Kelli Edwards, a spokeswoman for CBS News.

        They won’t publish cartoons, but they will run anything they can get out of Abu Ghraib. Both sets of images provoke Islamic anger; note how the media behaves when that anger is directed at them

        Yeah, the MSM only criticizes those it isn't afraid of.
