Business of Hate (continued)

Whilst there have been some half hearted apologies for the original Scarfe cartoon, published in The Sunday Times of London recently, from a number of sources, it is difficult to take the apologies seriously. See 

One wonders what would the consequences have been if such a cartoon had tried to give a similar message with reference to Islam, particularly as the Christian population is being hounded in so many places around the world by Islam. 

The newspaper Algemeiner seems to have countered the original cartoon in a novel way. Certain editors of many newspapers seem to feel that they can make the news rather than report it. Investigative reporting seems to have gone the way of manual typewriters, telegrams and their like.
