MSNBC have yanked Ted Rall's cartoon from their site, so of course Ted's ranting about "Neo-McCarthyite censors".


Conveniently, he provided me with the e-mail address to tell MSNBC I fully understand they're under no obligation to run the work of a talentless doodler if they don't want to.

Send a note to MSNBC! Ted Rall demands it!

UPDATE. Jim Treacher has the latest on pretender-Ranger Micah Wright, presently howling like a cat in a microwave over the terrible treatment hes been subject to. Cover your ears. As Treacher writes: "You'd think a former paratrooper would know not to keep kicking his legs on the way down... oh, right. Forgot."

UPDATE II. Ted Rall, big man.

Just sent MSNBC my opinion. I wasn't harsh, just told them I simply could not in good conscience support MSNBC if they continue to run this persons cartoons.

Also made sure the title was obvious: "Please drop Ted Rall cartoons", in case they don't actually read the contents.

Just sent MSNBC my best wishes for sidelining Rall. Subject Line - Ted Rall, Talentless Hack.

They won't have to actually read the content, and I suspect they wouldn't anyway.

I just sent my own e-mail......

Just make sure not to send any death threats, like "That latest Rall strip was really killer" or "Drop-dead hilarious!"

As for Micah Wright, I've set up a separate archive page for him here, if you don't want to scroll past the occasional post about the Olsen Twins or David Boreanaz.
