The Charlie Hebdo Mohammed cartoons: Media outlets shy away or take a stand
by Brian Stelter and Tom Kludt
In the wake of Wednesday's killings at the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, most major media outlets are choosing not to republish the French magazine's satirical but highly controversial cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed.
But The Washington Post did choose to show one of the images in Thursday's print edition. "I think seeing the cover will help readers understand what this is all about," editorial page editor Fred Hiatt told The Post's Erik Wemple.
Several popular news web sites have also published slide shows of Charlie Hebdo cartoons.
