The impact of Charlie Hebdo: Americans now back Muhammad cartoons

Nine years ago, six in 10 Americans said it was irresponsible for newspapers to run cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad over Muslims’ objections. Today, six in 10 say they are okay with the newspapers doing just that.

If the terrorists who killed 11 people at a satirical newspaper in Paris earlier this month changed anything, it’s pushing the media more toward publishing such cartoons.

How disturbing that 4 in 10 side with the Islamists.
