AP Won't Publish Muhammad Cartoons, Will Gladly Sell 'Piss Christ'

Purchase link pulled after hypocrisy exposed

As reported through Breitbart, the Associated Press made clear that its official policy is to censor photos of the Prophet Muhammad. Apparently, though, disparaging images of Jesus Christ are acceptable.

The AP told The Daily Beast, "It’s been our policy for years that we refrain from moving deliberately provocative images.” And because of that policy, the cartoons of Muhammad seen in the Charlie Hebdo magazine were deleted from its commercial photo service. 

But as was discovered, the infamous "art" photo of a crucifix immersed in urine, known as "Piss Christ," could be purchased online through the news organization. 

Once this hypocrisy was made known by The Washington Examiner, AP took the purchase link down.

A screenshot of the broken link is provided below:
