    Fox won’t cover Koran-burning; AP to block pictures

    With concern growing among some journalists that the coverage of a Florida church's planned Koran-burning could cause harm to Americans, some major news sources are saying they will limit their reporting on the event.

    The Associated Press announced Thursday that it will not distribute images or audio of the event, and will seek to highlight that the event is being carried out by a small congregation.

    "Should the event happen on Saturday, the AP will not distribute images or audio that specifically show Qurans being burned, and will not provide detailed text descriptions of the burning," AP deputy managing editor told staff in a memo, as cited at The Hill.

    As we all know, the media doens't air hate, or show it.

    So what you're telling us is that events which would put any and every American in a Muslim country in danger should be broadcast? Interesting. I remember when the Iraq war started, the mere mention that Arabs were dying supposedly put our soldiers in jeopardy more than the fact that we had invaded a country. Now that some jerk-off bigot is about to start a **** storm that anyone with more than two brain cells would want to avoid getting involved in - it doesn't matter what the media prints or says anymore? Your bias doesn't escape us.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Bias? I'm pointing out hypocrisy. I'm pointing out that all you have to do is threaten violence and the media cowers. They WIN. Don't you people get it? When we fear them, they WIN.

    What good is freedom of speech, or freedom of the press if we let others determine what we will show because we fear their reaction! This isn't about the Flag, or the Koran, or Islam, or Christianity. This is about letting FEAR control us.

    And some of you, shake in your boots.

    I'm not impressed with him or the other idiots doing this either. But to "not" show or cover it, but the media covers Flag Burnings and other highly offensive events... that's my problem. They FEAR the reaction, and that's not right man, not at all.

    I don't fear him, and neither should you. I think our military leaders are caught in the same trap, and appeasing Islamic Idiots that rage over stupid **** isn't helping us it's helping them.

    Special shout out to Okham for bringing this to my attention. You should read it liblady, it's a very good piece and even if you should find yourself NOT in agreement, you might find it educational as to why we on the right feel the way we do on some issues, it dovetails this thread BEAUTIFULLY.
