Freedom of the New York Press


Not the most important casualty of the intoonfadeh, but an interesting one: a bunch of the editorial staff of Gotham freebie the New York Press resign in protest over their higher-ups refusing to print the offending cartoons. Editor-in-chief Harry Siegel wrote:

Having been ordered at the 11th hour to pull the now-infamous Danish cartoons from an issue dedicated to them, the editorial group–consisting of myself, managing editor Tim Marchman, arts editor Jonathan Leaf and one-man city hall bureau Azi Paybarah, chose instead to resign our positions.
