Big Media papers are failing another test of character. Today many are not running Opus, not because in the words of Ace of Spades it has failed to “bring teh funny” over the last years, but because today it mentions the phrases “radical islamist” and “muslim fundamentalist.” Beware, another ridiculous cartoon jihad is on its way.
Note to Opus readers: The Opus strips for August 26 and September 2 have been withheld from publication by a large number of client newspapers across the country, including Opus’ host paper The Washington Post. The strips may be viewed in a large format on their respective dates at Salon.com. [source]
