Yesterday, Political Promise published one of the last pictures taken of Libya’s former leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, along with news websites, blogs and television channels across the world. I apologise if that picture caused you any distress, dear reader, I take full responsibility for what is published on this site. However, the merciless need to attack the media whiffs of rank hypocrisy. Journalists may not be everyone’s cup of tea at the moment as the latest hacking revelations are uncovered, but the news must be reported. For the people who showed courage and save lives from the rubble of the twin towers, should we not published pictures of the planes? For the Libyan people, with “the courage of lions” celebrating freedom this morning, should we not distribute the last images of their tyrant’s downfall? We did not celebrate his death, we did not blog about which dictator is next, just the facts.
