UH Daily Cougar Eddys 'Scared of Being Run Out Over Next Controversial Cartoon' (Against Press Censorship)
The Daily Cougar Eddys were taken aback recently when they read that "on Feb. 9, The Daily Illini, the independent student newspaper of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, republished six of the 12 Danish cartoons depicting Muhammad that have become the center of a controversy involving protests, riots and a growing death toll."
The Daily Cougar Eddys in their editorial "Press censorship: Worst. Idea. Ever.," became quite concerned when the Daily Illini Editor in Chief and Opinion Editor were suspended pending findings from a task force determined "to investigate the newspaper's decision-making process" over the printing of the cartoons.
As for myself, I consider the DI Editor in Chief Acton Gorton and Opinion Editor Charles Prochaska heros, and the UH Daily Cougar Editors should rise to their efforts and risk a suspension by printing the cartoons. If not, then they run the risk of remaining lap dogs to the liberal left, and just being another mediocre liberal product that hails from UH, with no real meat to their credits.
UH Daily Cougar Eddys, Zack -- STAND OUT from your present and past colleagues, and print the "so-called" offensive Muhammed cartoons. Take whatever consequences that come your way, but know that you would print those cartoons with a clear consequence that the UH community may then have a better understanding of the causation of the riots.
It is not fair that newspapers can boldly print material that is offensive to one God and refuse to print material this is offensive to another for 'fear' of what might happen. The DI Editors were fearless, and in the end they will be noted for their fairness, which is the same argument that the UH Daily Cougar can use in their explanation.
I do commend the Eddys for posting a website where the cartoons can viewed, and I doubt that will get them any strife. In the end, I doubt the Daily Cougar Eddys have enough balls to print the Muhammed cartoons. They will continue to be helpful to the liberal left aims and causes, and their political correctness.
Screw the libs!
