“Mallard Fillmore” cartoonist Bruce Tinsley has become the latest conservative to take a swipe at The New York Times.
In today’s comic, Tinsley puts these exaggerated words in the mouth of Times Executive Editor Bill Keller: “What keeps our nation free is our right to publish things like how our government is tracking terrorists’ finances … troop movements … where a person can get hold of some weapons-grade uranium … and so on. This has been Bill Keller, standing up for the public’s right to know.”
A King Features spokeswoman said the syndicate hadn’t heard any comments about today’s installment of”Mallard Fillmore,” which runs in about 400 newspapers.
