Greta Urges Media to Publish Charlie Hebdo Cartoons
In tonight’s “Off the Record” commentary, Greta Van Susteren called on all news organizations to show the controversial Charlie Hebdo cartoons following the terror attack on the Paris magazine offices that left 12 dead.
“Many news organizations are afraid, afraid to report all the news, even afraid to show you the cartoons and pictures that these criminals slaughtered 12 for,” she said.
While the media is scared, Van Susteren said news organizations should not be intimidated from telling the whole story – which includes the cartoons.
“Never forget: free press is the bedrock of democracy, and when the press is intimidated, the world changes forever.”
Van Susteren said that all news organizations should publish the cartoons together at the same time in a united front to fight intimidation and defend freedom.
“There is strength in numbers,” she said.
