George Clooney: las caricaturas no deben ser publicadas porque el asunto está demasiado caliente”

Posted by Spanish Eowyn en 26/febrero/2006

“The truth of the matter is you don’t have to run the cartoons. It’s not necessarily censorship. It’s maybe just saying, ‘It’s a little hot right now – let’s not push those issues.‘ Look, I’m a freedom of speech guy. I grew up, you know, I’m the son of an anchor guy so I believe you should be able to say anything.”
Except when things get “a little hot”, obviously.
“The New York Times – that’s where we get our straightest news from.”
Ha ha ha ha!
“Sanctions and inspectors were working.”
Yes I suppose they were, in a UN multi-billion dollar fraud kind of way.
And of course, they played the clip from Good Night and Good Luck that nearly every other BBC programme seems to have shown over the past week where Ed Murrow says:
We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home.
The irony is that those now lauding Murrow’s legend are the very same people who have deserted freedom by censoring themselves in the face of threats.

La verdad de esta cuestión es que no tienes que publicar las caricaturas“-ningún medio de comunicación tiene que publicar nada: es una elección que realiza cada medio. El Watergate no tenía que publicarse (no había obligación legal), pero sí debía publicarse (había obligación moral)-. “No es necesariamente censura. Es simplemente decir “Está un poco caliente la cuestión ahora, no lo forcemos“. Sr. Clooney, aténgase a lo que dice su personaje en su nueva película “Good Night and Good Luck”: No podemos defender la libertad fuera, si no lo hacemos dentro. Usted lo único que tiene es MIEDO.

Ahora, además, quiere que le llamen traidor:

Clooney, who has weathered attacks since opposing the 2003 Iraq invasion, said at one point that it was “frustrating” to be listed as a “traitor” on a set of playing cards, but he also accepted people’s right to free speech.
He later admitted he relished the attacks.
“I think it’s important to be on the right side of history,” Clooney said.
“I want to be on that deck of cards. And I want to be able to say that they boycotted my films… I want to be able to say I was on the cover of a magazine called a ‘traitor,”‘ he said.
“I’m proud of those because those were badges of honour for me because that was when you did it when it was hard to do,” the actor and director said.
