NH Watchdog Poll- The Monitor Cartoon
Print This Post
This week, the Concord Monitor published a controversial cartoon from Mike Marland depicting NH House Speaker Bill O’Brien with a mustache reminiscent of Adolf Hitler under the caption “if the mustache fits…” Republicans leaders denounced the cartoon and demanded an apology from the paper. Editor Felice Belman countered that the cartoon was Marland’s opinion, and that she did not want to censor his work. The Monitor also printed several letters critical of the cartoon this week, and is giving Grant Bosse a column on Sunday to take issue with the paper’s judgement.
