Danish PM: Media should use free speech "respectfully", we need new demands on how to use free speech
by Nicolai Sennels
Danish PM, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, rhetorically uses the word "democracy" where it actually concerns "free speech". Tariq Ramadan or José Manuel Barroso could not have said it better. Thorning-Schmidt tells the media to limit hate speech - under which criticism of Islam and the EU is categorized - and expresses the wish for new demands on how we debate to avoid hurting peoples' feelings. Thorning-Schmidt is - maybe not surprisingly - said to be a candidate to become the next European Commissioner for External Relations.
