NYT Won't Publish Cartoons Because It Doesn't Want to Offend Muslims

Many publications have reprinted the cartoons that Charlie Hebdo had published mocking Islam and Mohammad. Other media have refused to do so, including the New York Times. Their reason? Concern that they may offend their Muslim readers.

That concern doesn't extend to other faiths, however. Ed Driscoll notes that the Times hired the artist that produced the "Piss Christ" photo. I would point out that the Times has published not just one, but at least two reviews praising "The Book of Mormon" Broadway musical, without a care if the play is offensive to Mormons and their religion.
