Hi there,

Our generous triple match has been extended, which means your donation to Democracy Now! today will be TRIPLED. If you give $10, we'll get $30 to support our independent journalism. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical reporting. Let’s pick up the percentage! We rely on you for support—not the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis or the weapons manufacturers when we cover war. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.
-Amy Goodman

Newspapers Drop Dilbert Comic After Creator’s Racist Comments

HeadlineFeb 27, 2023

A growing list of media outlets will stop publishing the long-running Dilbert comic strip after its creator Scott Adams made racist comments on his YouTube show. Dilbert’s distributor has also cut ties with Adams, after he said Black Americans are part of a “racist hate group” and advised white people to “get the hell away from Black people.” The remarks were made in response to the results of a poll that asked respondents if they agreed with the statement “It’s OK to be white.” A number of major publications severed ties with Adams, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and USA Today.
