LOL! This is rich. Respect indeed. This from the same network that kept their mouths shut about Saddam's atrocities just so they could keep an office in Baghdad.

I honestly can't figure out which is funnier:  islam's reaction to the cartoons or the MSMs reaction to the muslims reaction to the cartoons.

I would guess an effort to get back into Iran. They got kicked out of there and this may be a ploy to help get their position there restored.

It will be interesting to see how CNN covers the next mocking of the Christian religion. And what backlash it will bring to them, if any.

The Ironic thing is the reason the cartoons were published in the first place last year was too address media self-censorship on muslim issues

Big time. Their actions have exposed them for what they are, but we knew it all along, didn't we?

I just sent them an email from that site. I told them that it would be FOX for me exclusively. Of course I never watch CNN anyway, but they don't know that. I said that at least FOX is fair and balanced and does not intentionally ridicule anyone's religion and asked why they did not mind offending Christians, but would never want to offend Muslims. They are totally un-American!

"Meaning they're scared to death."

Meaning they are afraid they'll have CNN personel kidnapped overseas.

Good for you! Everyone on FR should send CNN a similar comment. Maybe the Christian message that we are tired of being pushed around by CNN will start sinking in.

The Liberal cable news has more contempt and vile than they can spit at Fox News. It will be interesting to see when the next entrepreneur with billions to invest starts a new cable news channel even more conservative than Fox which plays the middle.

The market is begging for a right leaning news cable that makes no bones about their take on the news. Viewers and advertising dollars will pour in faster than they can count them.
