Vanishing strips

On Tuesday morning I pointed out that the Poughkeepsie Journal had all of this week’s “Doonesbury” strips on one page in PDF format. A reader let me know in the afternoon that they were gone. Journal executive editor Stuart Shinske tells Romenesko readers why:

After having posted the Doonesbury strips for the week on our website, we were asked by the folks at Doonesbury’s syndicate to publish the strips one day at a time.

We were happy to comply with that request.

* Star-Ledger: Facts behind “Doonesbury” abortion strips no laughing matter
* Des Moines Register: “We heard you [about “Doonesbury”] and we’re responding”
* Trudeau: “As far as I’m concerned, there is no subject that’s off the table”
