Journalist Nils Thorsen from the Leftist newspaper Politiken posted this honest statement on his Facebook profile. Politiken is the only Danish newspaper that excused itself to Muslims for printing the Muhammed cartoons.
Yes, it is fear. I work at a newspaper, and I know from myself and others that we think more than twice before writing anything about Muslims and Islamic topics nowadays. Concerning the drawings, I think it was pretty obvious, that people who demonstrated, set fire to Embassies and threatened with murder and more arson influence what we dared to say and write. We were so scared. More or less. We should face that fact."
