11/14/07 - Spanish Editorial Cartoonists Fined

Some of you may be following this controversial case about an embarrassing depiction of Spain's Crown Prince and his wife. This cartoon on a news magazine cover seems to be tapping into a ground swell of great dissatisfaction with the royals by the citizenry of Spain. The two men who drew and wrote the caption for the cartoon are being charged with slander and defaming the crown.

Is this a case of freedom of the press or just some uncouth folks trying to sell their paper? - you decide.

Here is a link to the story of the cartoonists legal judgment from BBC News.
