News Outlets Blur Charlie Hebdo Photos in Reporting Deadly Attack

By    |   Wednesday, 07 Jan 2015 04:41 PM

Some news organizations blurred or cut out controversial covers of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo after a deadly Paris bloodbath by gunmen seen on a video shouting "Allah!" as shots were fired.

The New York Daily News posted a 2011 picture of Charlie Hebdo editor and publisher Stéphane Charbonnier, who was killed in the attack, holding a blurred image of the magazine.

The photo is not censored, however, on Getty’s picture wire, where a cartoonish Mohammad says: "100 lashes if you don’t die of laughter."

In Britain’s Telegraph newspaper, a picture of a woman reading the magazine is shown, also with the front cover blurred.

Politico reports the image was yanked from the blog entirely afterward. The Telegraph also tweeted a photo of Charbonnier holding a copy of Hebdo, cropping out the front cover.


The Associated Press also cropped out a controversial cartoon in a photo of Charbonnier from 2011, Politico reports; the cartoon appears to be an orthodox Jew pushing Mohammed in a wheelchair saying, “you must not mock us” with the title “Untouchables 2.”

AP spokesperson Paul Colford told Politico is has been “a longstanding policy” not to “move deliberately provocative images.”

In contrast, The Huffington Post and The Daily Beast published slideshows of some of the magazine’s most provocative cartoons, Politico reports.

And The New York Times showed a cover as part of a slideshow, as did The Washington Post.

Newsmax.com also ran a cartoon from the magazine untouched.

Agence France-Presse news editor Dave Clark tweeted any agency photos of the magazine were published untouched, so if they are changed in newspapers, that’s the outlet’s decision.
