The Guardian censors Sue Blackmore

from Mediawatchwatch

Sue Blackmore, the author of a Comment is Free blog, has some interesting things to say about it in the comments section of Richard Dawkins’ website.

Firstly, the reason the news reported in her comment was old is because the article was written two weeks before it was published. The topic was considered so controversial that the editor of CiF had to personally approve it, and several phone calls and emails were exchanged before it was finally posted.

Secondly, the article which Sue originally submitted contained this link to the 12 Motoons, but when it appeared on CiF the link had been replaced with this one - a Guardian story about them.

The editors at CiF are so scared of offending Muslims that they won’t even link to the Motoons, let alone publish them.
