A spokesperson for the digital paper says it's obligated not to publish things that would offend "the reasonable sensibilities of our readers," Editor & Publisher reports. Rall believes the cartoon was dropped because of e-mail campaigns by conservatives. His award-winning cartoon appears in several AAN papers, including The Village Voice and Washington City Paper.
