Sometimes a dog is just a dog

The New York Post issued a statement about the infamous chimp cartoon published Wednesday. (Here if you need to see it.) At the end they stated “Sometimes a cartoon is just a cartoon – even as the opportunists seek to make it something else.”

First, let me remind everyone that this is the New York Post we are talking about.

Now, a little bit of history about chimps and Obama. Just last summer.

I’m sure if the editors at the New York Post need access to YouTube, their IT people would probably relax the firewalls a bit. In the interest of credible journalism. Well at least in the interest of making up good apology statements anyway.

Once again, let me remind everyone that this is the New York Post we are talking about.

About Rufus Dogg

I'm a dog who writes a blog. It is not a pet blog. It is a real blog that talks about real ideas. No, really. I do my own writing, but I have a really, really cool editor who overlooks the fact that I can't really hit the space-bar key cause I don't have thumbs. I talk about everything from politics to social issues to just rambling about local problems. And, sometimes I just talk about nothing in particular. Google+

  1. I’ll admit, I have never read the New York Post, or even heard of it. I’ve heard of the Times, but not the Post.

    So, fill me in … are they usually full of racist stuff …. or are they generally evenhanded?

    Not posted ironically, I seriously don’t know.

    The New York Post is a “newspaper” like the National Enquirer is a “magazine.” The only thing the New York Post has in common with a real newspaper is it is printed on newsprint.
