More Free Speech Courage From The MSM

Remember when the Boston Globe-Democrat refused to run the infamous "Danish Cartoons" in their news pages--despite the fact that it was the biggest story in the world at the time--because (according to the Globe-Democrat) the free speech advocates who drew them were as bad as the Nazis and the KKK?

Here we go again.

More jokes! More comedy! More Muslims! Something's got to be banned!

And so the Washington Post (who also refused to run the Mohammed cartoons) dumped the lastest "Opus" comic because it made light of radical Islam. Why?

"Sources told FOX News that the strips were shown to Muslim staffers at The Washington Post to guage their reaction, and they responded 'emotionally' to the depiction of a woman dressed in traditional Muslim garb and espousing conservative Islamic views."

Now THAT'S how you run a newspaper!

I can't wait to read about the Washington Post showing a Doonesbury cartoon mocking evangelical Christians to its born-again staffers and giving them veto power over the paper. When's that going to happen? Next week? Next month? When pigs fly?
