Less than a week after radical Islamic terrorists murdered 12 people in the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, the controversial publication has printed their latest edition and unveiled the cover, which has some media outlets refusing to air it.

The cartoon depicts the Prophet Muhammad holding a sign that reads, “Je Suis Charlie” sign with the slogan above him reading “Tout Est Pardonné,” which translates to “All Is Forgiven.”

CNN and MSNBC will not air it due “potentially offensive images of the prophet.”

“CNN will not show you the new cover, which depicts the Prophet Muhammad, because it is our policy not to show potentially offensive images of the prophet,” CNN host Carol Costello said.

NBC News has also decided not to air the cartoon image, but Fox News showed the cover during their 9 a.m. hour.

Charlie Hebdo has certainly not backed down to any terrorist group and will continue to exercise their free speech. The magazine often printed 60,000 copies and sales sometimes didn’t exceed 30,000, while issues with covers depicting Muhammad sold about 100,000 copies. They will print 3 million copies of this latest special issue.

Charlie Hebdo has been published every Wednesday for the past 22 years.

Five of its best known cartoonists who went by the pen names Charb, Honore, Cabu, Wolinski and Tignous were among those killed in the Paris massacre. Four members of the newsroom are still in the hospital.

Publishers of the weekly magazine will put the copies on newsstands worldwide in 16 languages on January 14.

On Sunday, millions of people gathered in Paris to support free speech and to take part in the Paris Unity March against terrorismMany prominent world leaders attended the rally, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and others. The Obama Administration did not send any officials.
