Norwegian media not quite up to Danish standards

Aftenposten "pixeled out" the Mo pictures

Norway's Aftenposten issues an admission that unlike major newspapers in Denmark, those in Norway have no balls.
Norway’s major newspapers have no plans to publish the controversial "Mohammad Cartoons", following the decision by Denmark's leading newspapers to reprint them today.

The Danish papers said they wanted to show their firm commitment to freedom of speech after Tuesday's arrest in Denmark of three people accused of plotting to kill the man who drew the cartoon.
A "firm commitment" apparently lacking in Norway.
