From China to Denmark, media lessons – Christian Science Monitor

From a Christian Science Monitor editorial:

Web giant Google and incendiary “Muhammad cartoons” have more in common than 2.7 million search hits that phrase produces. Google – which self-censors in order to do business in China – and the toon tumult point to a need for smart sensitivity in exercising freedom of expression.

Media such as Google or the newspapers that printed the cartoons must exercise responsible judgment, whether they flex their information muscles in free markets or operate in countries or with cultures that are far more restrictive.
