Miffed at Washington Post's Decision to Post Charlie Cover, Al Qaeda Breaks Up With That Newspaper

The WaPo had had an Al Qaeda source. Now that source has called them up to say things aren't working out.

However, the NYT and AP still have their Al Qaeda sources.

"An individual who has claimed to represent [al Qaeda] and who has previously provided statements and other information to The Washington Post said he would no longer do so because of the paper’s decision to publish the first post-attack cover of Charlie Hebdo, released this week," the Post said.

In contrast, separate stories by the New York Times and the Associated Press indicate that those two news outlets remain in touch with an al Qaeda source. Unlike the Post, the AP and the Times have declined to republish the Charlie Hebdo cartoons that mock Muhammad, asserting that the cartoons are offensive to Muslims.

In further related news:

Well this time a driver deliberately drove into a cop right outside the French President's palace.

You may remember that several drivers had run into French crowds shouting "Alluha Akbar" just before Christmas.

On Seth Myers' horrible show, Bill Clinton spoke out about the "world's greatest double standard."

"You read the profile of the two guys most prominently involved in the killing and how they got sucked into this by somebody essentially using religion and religious politics to advocate the world’s greatest double standard," Clinton told the late night host.

"If you come to our country, we won't let you worship the way you want. We won’t let you say what you want. They won't let you do what you want to do," Clinton continued. "However we have come to your country, therefore we have a right to do whatever we want to do, including kill you if you make us mad."

"It's just madness," the former president said.

In 2011, MSNBC and its subsidiary NBC News had no problems with Rachel Maddow showing the "Piss Christ" on her show; but now, they of course forbid her to offend the delicate religious sensibilities of Muslims.

And fat little girl Chris Hayes says it's just turribul that France has voted overwhelmingly to increase the tempo of its attacks on Al Qaeda in Syria and Iraq.
