Most UK newspapers, broadcasters and other news outlets have opted not to show the cover as images of the Prophet Mohamed are considered offensive to Sunni Muslims.
In her Sky News appearance, Fourest said she was "very, very sad" about this state of affairs, saying journalists in Britain had betrayed "what journalism is about by thinking that people cannot be grown enough to decide if a drawing is offending or not because you're not even showing it".
"It is completely crazy that in UK you cannot show a simple drawing as that," she said, as she attempted to show the front page of the magazine before the camera panned away and Sky News cut back to presenter Dharshini David, who apologised for any offence caused.
"We at SkyNews have chosen not to show that cover, so we'd appreciate it, Caroline, not showing that," David said.
"I do apologise, for any of our viewers who may have been offended by that."
