On Canadian Atheist: The Canadian English-language news media has betrayed Charlie Hebdo, again

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shooting, news media has been predictably flooded with details of what happened, and why. What’s been noticeably missing from virtually all English-speaking media, however, are any images of Charile Hebdo cartoons that feature Muhammad. CBC News, for example, showed highly blasphemous cartoons skewering Jesus and the Pope, but blurred out even the most benign image of Muhammad. This shouldn’t come as a surprise however; English-speaking media has always been shockingly cowardly when it comes to this issue, and part of the reason Charlie Hebdo was targeted can be traced back to their cowardice. For more details, checo out the post on Canadian Atheist.
