America’s shallow response

We’ve been accused of printing slanted news, despicable opinions and irreverent references to a variety of people and organizations.

And so it was with a vested interest that we evaluated the actions of our State department and the reaction of news organizations over global riots that have been blamed — shallowly, in our opinion — on an amateurish YouTube video insulting the Muslim faith.

Unfortunately, we have heard only voices in the distance that promote the constitutionally bestowed rights of individuals in a free society to express such opinions, whether or not misguided.

We’ve never seen the video, and feel no obligation to before defending the right of an individual to produce it. America will lose her heart if we abandon our values to placate a foreign mob.
