CNN hypocrisy


CNN International are the absolute masters of hypocrisy these days. Refusing to show their viewers the Mohammed-drawings claimed by some muslims to be offensive (all after a group of hatemonger-imams had toured the Middleeast and told religious leaders and arab media to believe so).
While CNN International refuses to show the drawings "out of respect for islam" they have today had absolutely no problems showing blatantly anti-semitic cartoons in a news-story about the clearly hateful cartoons in arab newspapers.

I think that it is perfectly okay to bring these pictures in a newsstory, in fact it would be irresponsible not to show them. The public needs to see the pictures themselves to be able to make up their own mind about them.

One of the pictures in the CNN report:


So why does CNN show these pictures - but not the harmless ones of Mohammed?

Well one reason is journalistic cowardice and the other reason is probably money.
We currently see a big difference between the US-media and much of the European media. While European journalists and editors dont let sponsor-interests keep them from doing responsible reporting much of the mainstream US-media with CNN at the head are all too willing to sell out on freedom of expression and responsible reporting.
