Ted Rall

Censorship? what's that?

Ted Rall must have known that this particular cartoon would cause some controversy, since football players like Pat Tillman are as close to American Royalty as sitcom stars.

I bet he didn't expect this reaction, nor this one pulled a cartoon by syndicated political cartoonist Ted Rall on Monday.

Rall’s cartoon, distributed widely by Universal Press Syndicate to scores of newspapers and Web sites, concerned the late Pat Tillman, the NFL player who quit football to join the Army. Tillman was killed last month in Afghanistan.

The cartoon, like others on, is published daily on the site via an automated syndication feed. Such feeds are rarely reviewed. However, Editor in chief Dean Wright concluded Monday’s Rall item did not meet standards of fairness and taste.
