Too Hot for American TV
American television nertworks, Fox News Channel among them, have decided that the attempted assasination of a leading critic of Islam in an American ally is unworthy of attention, so we must look northward for our information.
Danish historian and journalist Lars Hedegaard was interviewed by Canadian Sun TV's Michael Coren for the third time since Hedegaard survived an assassination attempt in early February, ostensibly for his criticism of Islamic supremacism, and was forced into protective seclusion. During this interview (Monday 3/18/13), Hedegaard observed,
Anyone who stands up and criticizes Islam is fair game. It's like Mao said, "Kill one and frighten thousands."
Hedegaard concluded that Islam must be freely criticized like any political ideology if the West is to harbor Muslim populations, yet maintain its bedrock freedom, freedom of speech.

Although Lars Hedegaard has yet to be interviewed by any major American television media outlet, he can be seen via live stream during an appearance today (Tuesday, March 19, 2013), from 10:30 to 12:30 PM Eastern Time, at The Heritage Foundation. He will be participating in a panel discussion following the screening of the film, "Silent Conquest: The End of Freedom of Expression in the West."
