Why is it that a University paper gets it right (publishing the cartoons) but the mainstream media is silent when they should not be? There are at least two reasons I can come up with. The press is afraid and feel intimidated by what has happened in other countries, in short: they are cowards. They also "don't want to offend" from an economical POV: printing the cartoons might mean cancelled subscriptions. They chose to stay silent, and play the "responsibility" card for PR reasons. Economics and cowardness have contributed to the sad state of North America's mainstream media. And this cartoon row shows it once again.
