Mr. Sean McManus

Dear Mr. McManus:

The decision by CBS News not to show viewers the controversial Muhammad cartoon, with a bomb in his hat, was cowardly. You censored your own newscast because you are scared or intimidated by radical Islam. By contrast, you aired the pictures from Abu Ghraib that hurt America’s image in the Arab/Muslim world. Your double-standard has been exposed for the American people to see. Please don’t give us any more pious sermons about your devotion to the First Amendment when you are so quick to appease the forces of radical Islam.
