Subject: Standards Center guidance: Planned Sept. 11
As you know, a group known as the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla., has announced that it intends to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11.
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.

No problem. I’m sure it will be on YouTube.
“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire....”
Then use the same policy when they burn flags.
they don’t have a problem showing american flags burning . . .
given AP’s long history of doctoring photos and videos this is no great loss.
I assume the AP won’t cover leftists burning American flags either... We have thin skins too! ( or we can pretend to...)
Someone should quickly invent a “network” or something so that anyone in the world can share pictures or text with anyone else...
I bet Associated Propagandists have no problem with pictures/video/audio of flag burnings, bible burnings, etc...
News is not news.....
. . . and they didn’t have a problem showing a picture of a US soldier dying in iraq (or was it afghanistan?) . . .
(was it the AP, or some other obama fellating MSM organization?)
Not saying anything is going to happen but it's a rough world out there.
The beheading of Daniel Pearl and others at the hands of Islam... WELL... that’s another story!
Burn the AP.
I am not sure what is the best path for this. The pastor will be portrayed as a wacko and all Christians being wackos. ALL of TV sucks and they all have Saudi investors or ME business deals so they are ALL pro-Islam.
On the flip side, maybe we show Islam that we are going to start pushing back. If you put a mosque at Ground Zero then be prepared for war.
As conservatives said in the past - the Balkanization of America aka Balkans - former Yugslavia and hundred of years of Christianity fighting back against Islam.
‘The AP will not distribute images or audio that specifically show Qurans being burned’
That’s right. Just bury your head in the sand. Or some other place.
LALALALALALALALALALALALALA - I can’t hear you!
The kuran burning will never take place because the obama brown shirts will shut it down. However, the threat of such an action just further reveals how unhinged the LEADERS of islam are. This is the real value in threatening to burn a K(u)ran.
Ass Press: typical hypocritical, wimpy assed pussies.
Come to think of it, the Ass Press and nobama share many qualities.
Don’t upset the hair-trigger touchy angry subhuman savages.
But there’s no problem showing pictures of crucifixes in urine, or Virgin Marys in dung. Ok to offend Christians, they won’t do anything. The Christians aren’t gonna yell and scream death cries. They’ll just pray for you.
Yeah. Go ahead and make more Jesus’s in chocolate. Go ahead and burn bibles. Oh, and ban those “Christmas trees” - they’re really bad.
Wow. I just found numerous AP stories about burning Bibles. I can’t IMAGINE why they have a double standard.
Exactly. Let the AP make itself irrelevant.
YouTube is owned by Google. They will take down that video faster than they would porn, or even something embarrassing to Democrats.
Here is a list of alternative video hosting websites.
Now was learn that AP won't even show or describe a burning Koran.
In what sense can this be called a news organization?
In other news: The AP will release any and all Top Secret records it can get it’s hands on.
Good. Nothing could further illustrate the point that the AP is no real force or power at all than to have 20 million or so hits on the videos online every day.
The arrogant propagandists at the AP act like they are still the exclusive wholesalers of the news.
That is so mid 20th century.
It gives a twist on the NYT phrase - “All the the news that we deem fit to print.” As in Private Enterprise Censorship.
But THIS is OK...

AP: “If we don’t report it, it’s not happening!”
Right, but you'll take big money to run soft-porn ads won't you, you pious slimeballs.
So they’re going to censor the news?
Isn’t that what they do anyway?
These are the same guys that would sream bloody murder about censorship in any other form.
IMHO, Sharia law, since it advocates putting in place, through violence if necessary, a governmental model that is diametrically opposed to ours, should be outlawed.
There’s freedom of speech and then there’s overthrow of the US government.
They wouldn't show pictures of people burning up or jumping out of the Twin Towers on 9/11, either...
Well! At least we don’t have to worry about the Ass Press spreading the “hate.”
Is there a way that the average person can essentially boycot or otherwise hurt the AP’s bottom line?
Threaten to burn a single Koran... And the world comes to a stop and shudders in fear, leader from the entire world come out against it, ect, ect...
WTH is wrong with this picture? Are we all secretly slaves to the Muslims and don't even know it? Why do we care what a bunch of rag heads living on a pile of sand half way across the world think about us burning their pedophile prophets drug induced ramblings that was probably printed in America by a Christian run company.
Since they don’t have a problem with censorship, (self imposed at this point), then they shouldn’t object to it after the right takes over in November.
Seems to me that the muslims (good, bad or indifferent) have won - or we have capitulated.
Not sure why we just don’t go ahead and convert and make it easier on ourselves. /s
“Someone should quickly invent a network or something so that anyone in the world can share pictures or text with anyone else...”
They could build it out of tubes . . .
“I am not sure what is the best path for this. The pastor will be portrayed as a wacko and all Christians being wackos.”
They do it NOW. I’m not seeing a difference.
AP doesn’t have to.
Already a couple dozen vids on Youtube.
sheesh they are all signing up to be pc
(sigh) Once again we see Muslim threats of violence trumping American’s rights of free speech.
I for one will be burning a Koran Sunday, filming it and putting it on youtube.
Want to know why?
Read the tagline
but is it ok to burn porn
