In today's Sun Peter Worthington reminds us that this fits the pattern for a cowardly media:
We all remember those Danish cartoons, that most newspapers around the world declined to publish on grounds that they would offend Muslims.
... it was one of our "free" media's sorriest moments -- a persuasive example of cowardice camouflaged as principle. The cartoons were not religious slurs; they were political comment against Muslim extremism.
An aside: The Free Dominion petition (click the above graphic) still sits at a pathetic 2000 signatures. No Worthington, no Jonas, no Cosh, no [your favourite pundit here]. Are they withholding on some principle or other? Or does the petition just need better promotion / publicity?
