Boondocks comic strip censored


<a href="">The Boondocks</a> is a popular comic strip created by Aaron McGruder that is available in the <a href="">New York Newsday</a> (and syndicated in over 200 other newspapers). When reading it this week, I got an overwhelming feeling of deja vu. The comics were repeated from a year ago. It seemed strange since there was no note saying that the 'author is on vacation' as is usual in these cases. Checking the online version of the comic strip revealed that there are comics for this week, but the <i>Newsday isn't running them</i>. The comics are for October <a href="">2</a>, <a href="">3</a>, <a href="">4</a>, <a href="">5</a> and counting. It's interesting where censorship crops up. These comics don't seem that incendiary, but perhaps juxtaposed with Garfield, they would offend too much readership. How's that for an objective press?
