CNN's Double Standard

Yesterday, Bill Bennet was on CNN's "the situation room," and while Wolf Blitzer started the segment, trying to point out that many Arab nations had double standards when it came to publishing irreverant cartoons. Bennet, however, made his own point that CNN had its own double standard; readily showing the images of anti-semitic cartoons and offensive christian images, but declining to air the Danish cartoons "out of respect for Islam." The full transcript is available here.

By far, the best line from Bennett was: "I promise you, they have won. They have silenced -- these -- these mobs have silenced the mainstream media, who are afraid of the mob."
