NY Post Defends Cartoon, Slams Al Sharpton

It doesn’t matter what the NYP had intended by publishing this cartoon. Tabloid status and free speech notwithstanding – the NYP’s publication of this cartoon has ramifications. It is my belief that instead that the newspaper professionals (I am hesitant to use the word journalists) made a decision that this cartoon was okay, despite the obvious insensitivity at best – or the intentional inference which is most likely considering the paper’s corporate roots and relative support of an extreme rightist agenda.

That being said – the public is powerful here … not powerless. If one thinks the NYP is the symbol of free speech and a worthy news source, people should buy extra copies double their subscriptions. Likewise, if one believes this to be counter productive and an unhelpful source of distraction as I do … they should line garbage pails with all the copies they have left and select another daily fish-wrapper for their crossword puzzles and word jumbles and let sister paper of the Wall Street Journal also die the monkey’s death.
