Toronto Sun Cover

January 14th, 2010

Rather, it is about cultural sensitivity, social responsibility and common sense.


Back when the Sun was refusing to print the Muhammad cartoons – still haven’t shown any even though a Muslim fanatic tried to murder one of the authors of the cartoons last week – they gave a self serving defense. It is available in it’s entirety here. At the time I said:

Remember this argument next time they run a front page with a picture of some poor guy running from a burning house in his underwear.

So this morning, I turn on The John Oakley Show show on The Home of the Leafs AM 640, and they are doing a segment on the today’s cover of the Sun. It is, according to the folks on Oakley, “news porn”. Frankly, it doesn’t bother me. But neither did the Muhammad cartoons. The question is, based on what I heard this morning, does this qualify as “cultural sensitivity, social responsibility and common sense”?

Based on the Sun’s own criteria, this is a questionable cover.

    The Toronto Sun is like having a close friend that you can’t trust. (real conservative)
