The Truth About Plagiarist Fareed Zakaria’s Views on Censorship

Fareed Zakaria’s recent stance on the issue of censoring offensive material mischaracterizes his formerly stated role in Yale’s decision not to republish cartoons that featured Mohammed.

In discussing Sony’s decision to scrap The Interview, Zakaria stated that Yale was wrong in 2009 when it decided to keep cartoons published in a Danish newspaper that featured Mohammed out of “The Cartoons That Shook the World,” a book published by the university.

    I’m more in line with saying they should have squashed ‘the interview’ and ran the cartoons around the clock. Why? Because the first time someone runs a movie about assassinating Obama or David Cameron or Netanyahu the cries of outrage will reach the sky and people will actually go to prison.

    suppression of disent is a corner stone of islam. When dealing with muslims you should expect tactical lying, and attempts to stifle opposing opinions as a default position.
