Chicago Tribune: This week's "Doonesbury" strips don't meet our standards of fairness

Washington Post

"Doonesbury" creator Garry Trudeau is running excerpts from Joe McGinniss’s Sarah Palin's bio in this week's strips, which won't be seen by Chicago Tribune print edition readers. The paper says in an A2 note that "the subject matter does not meet our standards of fairness [because] the strips include excerpts from a book that is not yet on the market and therefore unavailable for review or verification by the Tribune." The book's release date is Sept. 20. The Tribune is running "Thatababy" in the place of "Doonesbury."
