Times nixes anti-Islam ad, runs anti-Catholic ad
by Neil Munro
Executives at The New York Times have rejected a full-page anti-Islam advertisement that mimicked a controversial anti-Catholic advertisement they published on March 9.
According to a Mar. 13 letter sent by the Times to the ad's sponsor, anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller, the $39,000 anti-Islam ad was rejected because "the fallout from running this ad now could put U.S. troops and/or civilians in the [Afghan] region in danger."
Bill Donohue, the president of the Catholic League, accused the Times of having a double standard and told The Daily Caller that The Time's was based on "either [anti-Catholic] bigotry or fear [of Islamic violence], and they've painted themselves into that corner."
