If this article is supposed to be an argument for publishing it is unconvincing. Note I am not saying that publishing is wrong, just that this would lose at debate club.
Why? He has duty to be informed backwards. We hardly need to be more informed about the horrors perpetrated by ISIS. Our networks have no problem publishing that stuff 24 hours a day. If we were talking the duty to be informed seriously we need to be informed about the horrors WE are perpetrating, but FOX certainly isn't interested in that.
Take the examples given in the fine article: A burning Jordianian pilot; A burning little girl; Dead American soldiers. You see how one of these things is not like the others? Only one of them was deliberately produced and then cynically appropriated for pro-war purposes.
There ARE good arguments for showing the video, but need to be informed is bogus. Lets stick with free speech, huh?.After all that (fairly embarrassing) #JeSuisCharlie onanism we can't turn around and silence the voices of our enemies without revealing ourselves as self-righteous hypocrites.
