MSNBC blurred the cover of an issue of Charlie Hebdo during an interview with a contributor to the magazine, sticking to its policy of not airing cartoons of Muhammad which Muslims might deem offensive.
More embarrassing for the news network, Caroline Fourest, the Charlie Hebdo contributor, predicted during the interview that the network would blur the cover, a decision which she called "the saddest news" she's heard as journalists around the world rally around the satirical magazine.
Two Islamic terrorists killed 10 Charlie Hebdo employees and two policemen last week in Paris. The killers claimed they were outraged over Charlie Hebdo's recent publication of cartoons satirizing Muhammad. Most major news networks, including NBC and CNN, have said they will not air Charlie Hebdo covers with those cartoons.
