The Media is Finally Setting Higher Standards...

At CBS News, the decision was made not to run the cartoons. "We could explain it, so we didn't need to show it," says Linda Mason, CBS News senior vice president, standards and special projects, who compares the decision to one not to show dead soldiers. "Any rendering of Muhammad is an insult to Muslims, and desecration is even worse," she says, adding that the decision was made out of a desire not to unnecessarily offend, not because of the demonstrations or "out of fear of retribution."

Okay CBS...

Since you are in such a sensitive mood...

I'm tired of being offended so you had better start toeing the line or else.

(How long do you think it will take the media to figure this one out?)

And by the way...

I hear this term every now and then about "multi-culturalism".

I believe I have a good understanding of the term...

But someone, other than me, is going to have to explain it to the Muslims.

later...
