aNewDomain — The Assocation of American Editorial Cartoonists (AAEC) issued a formal statement calling for an investigation of The Los Angeles Times‘ firing of me, Ted Rall. The dismissal was allegedly as a favor to the LAPD because I criticized police brutality. In the aftermath, I found it difficult to get support from, well, anybody. That’s because one of the defining aspects of satire is that, eventually, you end up making fun of everyone. And everyone ends up hating you.
