At least three of the approximately 300 ‘Boondocks’ clients dropped today’s strip mentioning President Bush’s alleged former drug use.

Aaron McGruder’s comic showed one character saying: “Bush got recorded admitting that he smoked weed.” Another character replies: “Maybe he smoked it to take the edge off the coke.”

According to Universal Press Syndicate, newspapers pulling today’s strip included The Detroit News and the Star Tribune in Minneapolis. The Poynter Institute’s Romenesko site reported that the Chicago Tribune also dropped today’s “Boondocks,” with the paper saying the comic “presents inaccurate information as fact.”

I think the Tribune is wrong there. It presents accurate information as comic strip conjecture.
Here’s the strip.
Update: There were two strips involved. Both available here. (Thanks, Scott)
