More stupidity from CNN

Last weeks excuse
"CNN is not showing the negative caricatures of the likeness of Prophet Mohammed because the network believes its role is to cover the events surrounding the publication of the cartoons while not unnecessarily adding fuel to the controversy itself."

"Prophet Mohammed?" That even sounds a bit familiar, not even the Prophet Mohammed or Mohammed who is thought to be a prophet by Muslims.

How does Webster define the word prophet?
1. One who utters divinely inspired revelations

That’s quite a leap for a news organization. How do we know Mohammed was a prophet? CNN certainly isn’t offering any evidence.
I guess expecting CNN to refer to Jesus Christ as the son of God would be a bit much to ask. Jesus is revered as a prophet by Muslims and some Jews for that matter so you might think that CNN would refer to Jesus as a prophet also.

Lets check…

How about Here?
An Italian judge has dismissed an atheist's petition that a small-town priest should stand trial for asserting that Jesus Christ existed, both sides said on Friday.
No, not there

How about Here?
According to publicity for the book, the 100-Minute Bible "picks out the principle stories of the life and ministry of its central character, Jesus Christ."
No, not there

How about Here?
Was Jesus a preacher? A healer? A teacher? What may he have looked like? And what were the reasons for his death? This original CNN documentary offers factual evidence and current theories about the life of this hugely important religious figure.
No, not there

In fact, CNN goes out of it’s way to say the following:
"The Mystery of Jesus," the latest documentary by CNN Productions, looks at many of the questions and myths around the life of Christ.

These same academics offer factual insights into other important religious people associated with Jesus, such as John the Baptist and Mary Magdalene, whose reputation is often disputed.
You’ll notice it isn’t the Prophet John the Baptist.
