What cartoons?

Fox News, no cartoons here!

CNN, no cartoons here!

MSNBC must have them ok, I guess not.

ABC? no.

Surely CBS can at least fake a few cartoons, but they didn't.

NBC doesn't even care much for the riot story, but they will sell you several pages of "Islam cartoons". I had no idea Punky Brewster was a story about the daily life of a young Muslim girl.

For the record here's one.

Face of Muhammed has an interesting discussion going on about the levels of support different countries are showing for freedom of speech.

Certainly the New York Times has decided to show what the controversy is all about. Well no, I guess they just want to take a cheap shot at Afghanistan.

Michelle Malkin has a roundup of the hundreds of three brave American newspapers that have actually shown their readers what they are talking about.

The full series of cartoons were finally shown on TV.

Of course they didn't mean to show them. Michelle Malkin appearing on Hannity & Colmes held them up. FNC has been one of the most disheartening of the networks that refuse to show these drawings. Special Report did a roundtable discussion talking about how various outlets that refused to publish the pictures were either being cowed or respectful by not showing them. They never showed them on the segment, nor did they say which excuse they were using.

Since our press is so timid it is going to have to be a grassroots effort to support Denmark. China Daily has a list of Danish products we can enjoy. Don't worry, China Daily isn't a site for buying Scandinavian tableware.

**UPDATE** 2/12/06 Fox News Sunday has shown the cartoons. They also make reference to other times FNC has shown them. It's only an honorable mention because all they did was hold up a copy of the Weekly Standard, but the Fox host, Chris Wallace, personally showed them rather then making a guest do it.
