The Huffington Post used a coat hanger to illustrate their story about the GOP's anti-abortion platform. Newsweek's Tumblr page criticized the imagery and drew some criticism themselves from commenters supporting HuffPo's decision. In response, Newsweek changed the cursor on their page from the usual mustache to a wooden coat hanger. Which makes sense because... the person in charge of Newsweek's Tumblr doesn't know how jokes work?

Salt Lake City Tribune cartoonist Pat Bagley protested his paper's decision to run all but one strip from the controversial Doonesbury abortion story-arc by pasting it into his own space. The Tribune objected to the last panel of Gary Trudeau's comic, in which the doctor performing a mandatory sonogram says, "by the authority invested in me by the GOP base, I thee rape."

However Bagley snuck it in under his own comic, in which he criticizes former Republican Utah House Majority Leader Kevin Garn. Garn was forced to resign in 2010 after scandal involving him hot-tubbing in the nude with an underage girl.
