When fear cows the media
Finally a major American newspaper admits their real reasons for not publishing the cartoons:
"....isn't publishing the Mohammed drawings, and in a brutally candid editorial it explained why.''Our primary reason," the editors confessed, is ''fear of retaliation from . . . bloodthirsty Islamists who seek to impose their will on those who do not believe as they do . . . Simply stated, we are being terrorized, and . . . could not in good conscience place the men and women who work at the Phoenix and its related companies in physical jeopardy. As we feel forced, literally, to bend to maniacal pressure, this may be the darkest moment in our 40-year-publishing history"
