Censoring Political Cartoons in the iPad Age


KLEIN on COMICS.mp3

Daryl Cagle draws political cartoons for a living, and he also runs a
distribution syndicate. He wanted to push some cartoons to the cutting
edge hand held devices of our time and he hoped to make a buck for
cartooning while he was at it (since the print business model is in
total free fall). But Cagle quickly discovered that Apple was going to
impose some unexpected limits on his ambitions.

Also lending his voice to this piece of radio is Lloyd Dangle of Troubletown. Dangle’s
professional cartooning work is mostly featured in the Alternative
Weekly press, which has also seen budgets shrink dramatically for drawn opinions and entertainment.

This 10 minute radio feature aired on Pacifica Radio’s Letters to
Washington on May 6, 2010
