Fox won’t cover Koran-burning; AP to block pictures | Raw StoryWith concern growing among some journalists that the coverage of a Florida church's planned Koran-burning could cause harm to Americans, some major news sources are saying they will limit their reporting on the event.
The Associated Press announced Thursday that it will not distribute images or audio of the event, and will seek to highlight that the event is being carried out by a small congregation.
"Should the event happen on Saturday, the AP will not distribute images or audio that specifically show Qurans being burned, and will not provide detailed text descriptions of the burning," AP deputy managing editor told staff in a memo, as cited at The Hill.
As we all know, the media doens't air hate, or show it.
