Publish or perish …

According to our friend Walter Olson at overlawyered.com: “CNN, NYT, AP, NBC, ABC, the BBC, Guardian, Telegraph, and the CBC, will *not* be running Charlie-Hebdo cartoons, though a number of American publications did so, including Daily BeastVox, and Bloomberg. No UK paper on Thursday morning runs the cartoons on its cover — though the Berliner-Zeitung in Germany publishes a full spread of them.” Is there a pattern here? New media versus old? We do … New media outlets–such as the aforementioned Daily Beast, Vox, and Bloomberg, not to mention independent bloggers–are way more relevant and willing to offend sensibilities compared to our pusillanimous and increasingly archaic Anglo-American newspapers and TV and cable networks.
