Former Charlie Hebdo contributor Caroline Fourest was denouncing British media outlets for not showing the magazine’s “survivor” issue during a live interview on Wednesday’s Sky News Tonight when the broadcaster swiftly cut away when Fourest held up the magazine to the camera.
“I’m very sad, very sad that journalists in UK do not support us, that journalists in UK betray what journalism is about by thinking that people cannot be grown enough to decide if a drawing is offending or not because you’re not even showing it. Which is completely crazy that in UK you cannot show a simple drawing as that.”
Forest reached down to her side and brought up the latest issue of the satirical magazine to show the top half of the cover when David interjected to say that Sky News had decided not to show the cover as the camera cut from Fourest back to David.

“Here at Sky News we have chosen not to show that cover. So we would appreciate, Caroline, not showing that. I do apologize for any of our viewers who may have been offended by that. As you know here at Sky News we have taken an editorial decision not to feature the cover of Charlie Hebdo.”
