Jesus & Mo on Newsnight

Did you catch Newsnight this week? The Author of the Jesus & Mo cartoon was interviewed by Jeremy Paxman.

Prior to this, the Author made his thoughts known regarding the censorship imposed by Channel 4.
"This will be obscure to you if you don’t know the backstory. Last night, Channel 4 News did a piece on the Maajid Nawaz/J&M controversy. They showed the comic, but censored Mo – thus playing to the worst stereotype of Muslims as violent fanatics, pushing liberal Muslims “further into a ditch” (Nawaz), betraying the principles of journalism in a democracy, and providing fuel for true anti-Muslim bigots.
Nice work, Channel 4 News."
