HARPER'S TO PUBLISH DANISH CARTOONS



Finally, a liberal magazine and a well respected cartoonist break the MSM taboo on the publication of the cartoons. The magazine is Harper's and the cartoonist Art Spiegelman of the MAUS fame. Spiegelman is trying to balance his disapproval of the politics of the Danish paper which published the cartoons and his disapproval of MSM. Borders will not dare keep this magazine off the shelves.

. . . he criticized U.S. news outlets for not showing the cartoons out of what he called"political correctness that smelled of hypocrisy and fear."

Drawing historical parallels with cartoonists jailed in the past, he said,"I do believe in the right to insult."

By the way, this just in - EU commission report states, free speech equals intolerance.
