Former Staffer: Paper Censored Breen

Axes, wheel and sparks from application of one to the other in full evidence, a former San Diego Union-Tribune staffer lobs a series of bombs against his former employer, including an interesting one about their cartoonist Steve Breen. If I'm understanding the writer correctly, he believes Breen was freer in the stuff he syndicates nationally than with the local material, to an obvious and egregious effect. The local paper connection that many political cartoonists enjoy can in many ways yield the most interesting work that they do; I never thought there might be that distinct a difference in what's allowed. This accusation should be at the very least be filed away in case the issue comes up with more cartoonists.
