Post Fires Editor Who Was Critical Of Racist Cartoon

delonas.jpgThe Huffington Post reports that The New York Post has fired associate editor Sandra Guzman, months after she was critical of a Sean Delonas cartoon that garnered criticism last February for its comparison between a crazed chimpanzee and President Barack Obama.

Although HuffPo, citing anonymous Post employees, said Guzman’s firing “seemed retributive,” the News Corp.-owned paper claims the editor was dismissed because they “discontinued” the section she worked for, Tempo, which focuses on Latino culture and heritage.

But perhaps the Post could have picked a better time to end their Latino-focused section than in the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month. We imagine this isn’t the last we’ll hear of this latest Post controversy.
