It’s been how long since 9/11 brought islam to the world’s attention again?!
The enemedia presstitutes’ jobs should be to do simple, basic research into the subjects they pontificate on.
When they put up their fact-free opinions in stead of those obvious facts, they are committing the CRIME of slanderous, victim-blaming criminally-negligent FRAUD.
With islam, they are all willing accessories and complicit enablers of this ancient yet ongoing extortion-racket CRIME-syndicate fraudulently advertised as the “religion” of islam, and as such they are aiding and abetting these “holy mobsters'” human-trafficking slavery and murder crimes.
They should be arrested charged indicted tried and sentenced.
Prophet Muhammad cartoon in Quebec papers after Charlie Hebdo shooting
English-language Montreal Gazette opts against publishing image, Radio-Canada runs it sparingly

Quebec’s major French-language newspapers have jointly published a Charlie Hebdo editorial cartoon featuring the Prophet Muhammad, in a show of solidarity with the satirical Paris newspaper where 12 people were killed on Wednesday.

The cartoon shows the half-hidden, grimacing face of the Prophet Muhammad, saying, “It’s tough to be loved by idiots.”
The French-language newspapers that published the cartoon are:
- Le Devoir.
- Le Journal de Montréal.
- Le Journal de Québec.
- 24 Heures.
- La Presse.
- Le Soleil.
- Le Quotidien.
- Le Droit.
- La Tribune.
- La Voix de l’Est.
- Le Nouveliste and Métro.
In a joint statement published alongside the cartoon, the newspapers explained they wanted to honour the victims of the Paris shootings, some workers at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, and show their support for the “fundamental principle of freedom of expression.”
“Attacking someone simply for their ideas and opinions is an unacceptable impediment to democracy,” the statement said.
Philosophy of respect
The Montreal Gazette, the English-language daily, decided not to run the same image, which was originally published in 2006.
Lucinda Chodan, editor in chief of the Gazette, said her newspaper’s parent company, Postmedia, has a long-standing policy against publishing depictions of the Prophet Muhammad.
“It isn’t political correctness or cowardice. It’s based on a philosophy of respect towards the Muslim faith,” she told Mike Finnerty, host of the CBC morning show Daybreak, on Thursday.
Chodan added, however, that she supports her “colleagues in the francophone press who published the cartoon.”
“Of course, we also support Charlie Hebdo,” she said.
The Gazette showed that support with a rare banner headline in French, “Nous sommes tous Charlie,” which translates into, “We are all Charlie.”
Denise Bombardier, a columnist for Journal de Montréal, said she’s proud of the province’s French-language newspapers.
“It says something about political correctness and about courage,” she told Daybreak.
“I’m sad that the Gazette refused to do this, because I think that this is the war of the 21st century, and if we don’t react the way we did in our newspapers this morning, and in many newspapers around the world and in Europe, then this war is lost.”
Another columnist, Patrick Lagacé, who writes for La Presse, said concern for political correctness is much stronger in English-speaking countries, such as Canada and the United States, compared to French-language media in Quebec or France.
“I think the anglo world, English Canadians, are prisoners to political correctness when they make some judgment calls like that in the media,” he said.
‘It isn’t censorship,’ says CBC’s David Studer
(THIS SHIT SHOULD BE FIRED, CHARGED WITH COMPLICITY IN MUSLIM CRIMES, THEN DEPORTED TO SYRIA, LIBYA, OR SUDAN … OR WORSE).
CBC News has decided not to publish cartoons from Charlie Hebdo that feature the Prophet Muhammad.
“This is not a ban, and it isn’t censorship,” SNIVELING TRAITOR David Studer, CBC’s director of Journalistic Standards and Practices, said in an email on Wednesday, reminding news staff of CBC’s long-established policy.
On Thursday January 8th, 2015, Studer gave a truly despicable interview on CBC’s “As It Happens” show.
“We are being consistent with our historic journalistic practices around this story, not because of fear, but out of respect for the beliefs and sensibilities of the mass of Muslim believers about images of the Prophet. Similarly, we wouldn’t publish cartoons likely to dismay or outrage mainstream followers of other religions.”
CBC’s French service, Radio-Canada, took a different approach and chose to run the cartoon on TV and its website.
Michel Cormier, Radio-Canada’s executive director of news and current affairs, said the image was used sparingly, and with the intention of providing context to the events unfolding in Paris.
“We’re trying to explain to people what’s happening,” he said.
Update from PB1 Ottawa Citizen, Saturday 10 January 2015, Christie Blatchford:
The CBC distinguished itself this week — thank you to the independent media critic Jesse Brown for this — with two bedwetting memos from its libtarded and treasonous coward “journalistic standards and practices director” David Studer.
“As we cover the shootings at Charlie Hebdo in Paris, there are obviously calls to make,” Studer wrote. “NN (the CBC News Network) has been doing a great job of handling this on the fly.
“Please bear in mind:
“We aren’t showing the video of the shooting of a police officer lying on the ground. It’s just too graphic and horrifying. NN is using a still of the moment and that’s a good solution.
“We aren’t showing cartoons making fun of the Prophet Muhammad. Other elements of Charlie Hebdo’s content and style are fine, but this area should be avoided as, quite simply, it’s offensive to Muslims as a group.”
Later, Studer said in another note: “Many people are arguing that the violent actions in Paris today invite — some would say almost require — others to show solidarity with Charlie Hebdo by reprinting the offending cartoons. Some individuals, including politicians, are tweeting these images.
“I understand the impulse but don’t buy the logic.
“We wouldn’t have published these images before today — not out of fear, but out of respect for the beliefs and sensibilities of the mass of Muslim believers. Why would the actions of a gang of violent thugs force us to change that position?
“This isn’t the time for emotional responses or bravado. There are better ways to honour and stand beside our fellow journalists.”
What he meant, of course, was that there are safer ways to honour their dead fellows.
Studer is a graduate of Carleton University’s journalism program, now home to professor Karim H. Karim, who this week said in an interview that it’s not “helpful” to use words like “barbaric,” as Prime Minister Stephen Harper did about the Paris killers.
“When leaders do this a lot of people are listening,” Karim said. “When ‘barbaric’ gets attached to them, these are the kind of stereotypes and images that are being built up. What is achieved by using rhetoric like that?”
He and Studer appear to share the worrying view that the journalist’s role is to protect delicate readers and viewers from offence (I say this after reading some of Karim’s writing on journalism).
It’s not a time for rhetoric; Karim and I agree about that, just not what constitutes it.
SO “WHAT DO I SAY ABOUT ALL THIS?” (YOU ASK):
