Letters to the New York Post Editor (UPDATE)

February 19th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

As you can see, we’re experiencing some difficulty writing to the New York Post about the racist cartoon they published this week, especially after editor-in-chief Col Allen defended it, saying, “The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy.” But as soon as we get our shit together, we’re sending our letters here. You should, too.

(In the meantime, check out the always brilliant Lee Camp’s version of how the cartoon should have looked.)

UPDATE: The New York Post apologizes. Sorta.
