Apparently, Danish media felt they have been overly fearful of offending Muslims - cowed, I suppose - and so they invited several cartoonists to draw Mohammed cartoons for publications as a way of addressing the self-imposed censorship.
Addressing the issue? Or deliberately insulting people? If the goal of the Danish media here is to deal with their perceived constraints about offending Muslims, there are a lot more productive ways to go about doing it. If I feel that the Christian Right exerts too much influence in the US, there are better ways to register my frustration than publishing pictures of Jesu Christo in full-on tubgirl mode.
In reply to:
I think the Danish paper felt that there *was* a need to loosen the noose they felt over the issue of Islam.
And the question is, was this what was accomplished? All it did was push a few buttons, and make other press outlets even more wary about offending people in the future.
