I saw this on Twitter and thought it was a joke. It was not a joke.
The sniveling cowards at PMSNBC actually blurred the cover of an issue of Charlie Hebdo during an interview with a contributor to the magazine, Tuesday.
The move was made all the more pathetic as Caroline Fourest, the Charlie Hebdo contributor, accurately predicted that the network would blur the cover, a decision which she said was “just crazy.”
“Then we had some other cartoons, more Charlie Hebdo, like this one, that I know because we are in America, you are probably going to blur it, which is just crazy,” Fourest told MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow.
The French journalist then held up a copy of a Charlie Hebdo issue, the cover of which depicted a cartoon of Muhammad which MSNBC had blurred, as Fourest predicted.
“So let’s talk about that,” Farrow simpered. “It’s a debate going on in newsrooms around the world, and it is true, many stations including NBC News have decided they will not show some of those covers that are most offensive, particularly in their depictions of the Prophet Muhammad. What’s your response to that?”
“I think it is the saddest news I’ve heard in this all of this incredibly moving mobilization around Charlie Hebdo,” Fourest replied.
I don’t know what is more annoying about Farrow’s pathetic mewling.
The idea that MSNBC is not showing the cartoons out of politeness (not out of political correctness and mortal fear,) when everyone knows that they’ve not shown themselves to be so polite when it comes to offending other (conservative) groups.
Or Farrow’s idiotic insistence on calling the original head-chopper, “the Prophet Mohammed.”
Is Farrow a Muslim convert? If not – why does he call him, “the Prophet?”
Good grief man. I can sort of understand the reluctance to show the cartoons under the threat of murder and mayhem – but I don’t think the “violent extremists” are going to come after you for the offense of not showing enough groveling deference to their prophet.
