Do more BBC journalists than Muslims have sympathy for the Charlie Hebdo terrorists?

by | 26th, February 2015

Charlie Hebdo now has a print run of 2.5m.  The Daily Telegraph, Daily Express and other newspapers whose journalists are undervalued and underpaid (surely content providers ed) may worry that sackings and short contracts will be escalated to more drastic staff-cutting profits-raising measures.

But the problem is that Charlie Hebdo can’t get the staff.

Laurent Sourisseau, the new editor and shareholder, tells the Times :

“They ask, ‘Will I have to come to the editorial conference? Do I have to sign under my real name?’ and they say they’ll meet us in six months’ time.”…

Last month, eight million copies were printed of its Survivor’s Edition, generating €12 million (£8.8 million). Subscriptions have brought in a further €3 million and donations €4.2 million. This compares with revenue of €5.2 million for the whole of 2013, when Charlie Hebdo lost €51,999.

In other news, the BBC says:

The majority of British Muslims oppose violence against people who publish images depicting the Prophet Muhammad, a poll for the BBC suggests. The survey also indicates most have no sympathy with those who want to fight against Western interests.
