Flashback: New York Daily News censors Charlie Hebdo cartoon

It's this kind of fecklessness by the mainstream (and much of the rest of the) media that made Charlie Hebdo stand alone and made them a target. This picture is from the New York Daily News in 2012 and may be found here.

Notice that mocking (religious) Jews is just fine with the Daily News. Only Muslims are immune from mockery and criticism.

What could go wrong?

That is why we get the NY Post delivered. I admit to reading some actually good articles from the Daily News once in awhile on line.

You miss the most important point! They censure a muslim in that image, but leave in the anti-semetic caricature of a Jew.

The ultimate in craven cowering by the Grey lady.

(Also the muslim censored is NOT mohammed, peanut butter upon him).

Elder has a good summary here:
