I'm canceling my paper over offensive cartoon

info@islandpacket.comFebruary 14, 2014 

Freedom of speech is a right given to us by the First Amendment, and Mr. John Cole, a political cartoonist, exercised his with a recent cartoon. I am free to cancel my subscription to the newspaper because of the offensive political cartoon about coverage of the Benghazi attack by Fox News and The Drudge Report.

Many of us in America grieve for the four Americans left to die after being tortured. My husband and two uncles served our country. We never leave our fallen behind. Fox News is the only news organization which has pursued the truth of why security wasn't sent or why no troops were sent to rescue our people. The Drudge Report covers news items which make the left uncomfortable. How interesting these are the two references Mr. Cole chose to point out in his offensive cartoon.

There are many better sources of unbiased news available to me than the obviously biased views of the newspaper.
