The New York Times, June 29, ran a story regarding a controversy concerning the acceptance by the non-profit Milwaukee Art Museum of a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made of condoms.
While the premeditated insult pretending to be art is not yet on display due to gallery renovations, Catholics are understandably upset.
The Times, of course, included an image of the offending artwork.
OK, fine. It’s a story and showing the image helps bring an understanding as to what the fuss is about.
The problem is that with regard to a far more relevant story seven months ago, the Times pointedly chose not to print an image that they thought might offend religious sensibilities, even though it was far more integral to the events being discussed.
Why the double standard?
The answer is obvious. Despite its long boast, the Times bases its editorial decisions entirely on fear and favor.
They are gutless hypocrites and a disgrace to journalism.
Oh yeah, and regarding the character of the “I think I’m smart” set, would the Milwaukee Art Museum accept a portrait of Mohammed ? Even if it wasn’t made of condoms?
