Liberals or Conservatives...

There seems to be confusion in the media on whether the Danish Mohammed
cartoons were published by a right wing or a left wing publication. The
most amusing to me was the NYTimes op-ed section, that had two articles set
next to each other. One lamented the indiscriminate offensiveness of
Liberals, as evidenced by the publication of the cartoons, and the second
complained about the Danish right wing, bringing the Jyllens Posten cartoon
publication as evidence.

To set the record straight the Jyllens Posten is a right wing publication.
And as I see it, the cartoons were explicitly meant as a "we don't like you
Muslims" page. Which is fine, and I'm all for freedom of the press, but
let's call a spade a spade.
