How book publishers censor themselves. They win the "noball" prize

1 post in this topic

Here is an article from the Huffington Post indicating how book publishers are chicken to publish any book that might "offend" Islam. The commentator distinguishes between the pre-Rushdie days and the post-Rushdie days, When Salman Rushdie published -Satanic Verses- the publisher went through with the publication and distribution regardless of the fatwa issued against Rushdie and Islamic death threats made to book store operators if they carried the book.

The commentator contrasts this to a book that was cancelled by the publisher recently, because some academic said the book might "offend" Muslims.

See this for your self. There is a 2.5 minute video that makes the above points very clearly
