Cartoonist Suspended From California Newspaper For Violating Ethics Policy

imageAccording to area news media, cartoonist Steve Rustad's work has been suspended for an undetermined period starting yesterday by the Argus-Courier because Rustad provided a campaign against a local politician with art/cartoon materials. The publisher called it a clear violation of the newspaper's ethics policy; it also violated the ethics policies of the paper's owner, the New York Times Co. The policies extend to freelancers like Rustad that work with the paper. Rustad said he was unaware of the policy.
