Charlie Hebdo's moment: Why some media outlets are afraid to run the cover
by Howard Kurtz
In the television business, I like to say that people vote with their remote controls.
In Paris right now, people are voting with their francs.
They are buying up the new issue of Charlie Hebdo in such waves that many French newsstands sold out before 7 a.m. yesterday. The usual print run of 50,000 had been boosted to 3 million, and when that was quickly snatched up, it was upped to 5 million.
