MSNBC - Why we pulled Monday's Ted Rall cartoon
Item did not meet MSNBC standards of fairness and taste
MSNBC.com pulled a cartoon by syndicated political cartoonist Ted Rall on Monday.
Rall's cartoon, distributed widely by United Press Syndicate to scores of newspapers and Web sites, concerned the late Pat Tillman, the NFL player who quit football to join the Army. Tillman was killed last month in Afghanistan.
The cartoon, like others on MSNBC.com, is published daily on the site via an automated syndication feed. Such feeds are rarely reviewed. However, MSNBC.com Editor in chief Dean Wright concluded Monday's Rall item did not meet MSNBC.com standards of fairness and taste.
You can see the original cartoon here.
Maybe they should start looking at this crap before they put it out there for everyone to see? Rall has quite a track record. They should have seen this coming - most of us did.
Liberals crying about free speech in 3...2......
Hey, before you get your panties in a wad, this is not
a free speech issue. MSNBC is not obligate to give Ted Rall space to spout his filth.
Makes me spit nails.
