Gotta love the MSM

We can't show cartoons, because it might offend Muslims, but the MSM can show 1,000 three-year old pictures from Abu Ghraib prison because ...?

Someone help me out here.

he Pentagon has been fighting those legal efforts, arguing that release of the evidence could violate the prisoners' rights to privacy, endanger U.S. troops in Iraq and incite violence in the Muslim world. After the scandal was first made public in 2004, there were violent protests in many Muslim nations.

Violent protest against freedom of speech (and said speakers) is bad, but violent protest aimed against the US government is good.

WHY does the world need to see more pictures? When a peddler of child porn is arrested, does the world need to see the porn to understand the story? I don't think so.
