Apple blocks Pulitzer-winning political cartoonist from iStore for "ridiculing public figures"


Laura sez, "Mark Fiore just won a Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning for his animated works appearing on SFGate.com. I spoke with Fiore about what's next for him, and he said he'd like to take his freelance shop mobile. Only problem: Apple denied his iPhone app because it 'ridicules public figures,' a violation of the iPhone Developer Program License Agreement. If he can get his app past the Apple satire police, he should be good to go."

How's that benevolent dictatorship working out for ya?

Mark Fiore can win a Pulitzer Prize, but he can't get his iPhone cartoon app past Apple's satire police

(Thanks, Laura!)
