Should the Plain Dealer have pulled 1/13/12 Non Sequitur cartoon?

You may go see the Non Sequitur cartoon from today (1/13/12) which the Plain Dealer did not run. I used it as a teaching moment with my 6th grader and he got why it could be objectionable right away. Whether or not it should have been published is of course a different matter.

Very interesting – what do others think?

Well, there are comments at my thread and many times more at Connie Schultz’s. Multiple folks in the news biz indicate that no other papers appear to have pulled it but I have not corroborated that. The PD’s Ted Diadiun, the reader rep, says he was receiving a lot of comments but mostly people thinking the paper should have let it run (that was from earlier today).

So – go look and then come back and tell – what did you think? Should the PD have let it run?
