Paralysis of the media
Rose, who is best known for commissioning the drawings of Muhammed in 2005, presents in his latest book the yet untold story of what happened at Jyllands-Posten during and after the crisis and how he was gradually shut out by the newspaper’s administration and prohibited from writing about religion or appearing in the media, nationally or internationally. It is a book that raises questions about the media and it’s power, and whether or not free speech still exists, when terror can turn a newspaper against itself.
Readers of Weekendavisen, one of the leading broadsheets in Denmark, chose Flemming Rose’s non-fiction book, De besatte (The Besieged), for the award of 100.000 kroner.
