Brickbat: Journalistic Ethics


Charlie Hebdo

The editor of an Urdu-language newspaper in India faces criminal charges and death threats after reprinting a 2006 cover from the magazine Charlie Hebdo depicting Mohammad crying. "You are free to write anything in our country, but you are not free to hurt religious sentiments," said Nusrat Ali, a reporter with a rival newspaper who was among the people filing a complaint about the cartoon.
