Charlie Hebdo: New York Times Deletes Reference to Muslim Proselytizing During Attack

The Daily Caller has a fascinating story on the New York Times’ response to the Charlie Hebdo attack. The paper initially quoted a survivor who said one of the Muslim shooters told her to convert to Islam and cover herself (per Sharia law).


Here’s the latest example of the New York Times censoring itself to avoid offending Muslims after an act of Islamic terror. This morning, BenK at Ace of Spades quoted an NYT story by Liz Alderman titled “Survivors Retrace a Scene of Horror at Charlie Hebdo.” Take note of these two paragraphs from that story:

Sigolène Vinson, a freelancer who had decided to come in that morning to take part in the meeting, thought she would be killed when one of the men approached her.

Instead, she told French news media, the man said, “I’m not going to kill you because you’re a woman, we don’t kill women, but you must convert to Islam, read the Quran and cover yourself,” she recalled.

The paper later deleted the references to conversion, the Quran and covering herself.
