Cartoonist rehired by Iowa farm publication that fired him

(AP) -

An Iowa editorial cartoonist has been rehired by the farm publication that fired him earlier this year.

Rick Friday's cartoons returned to the Fort Dodge, Iowa, based Farm News in Friday's edition.

He was fired in May after an advertiser reportedly complained about a cartoon he drew complaining about dwindling farmer profits at the same time CEOs at agricultural corporations receive millions.

Friday says the Farm News apologized for his firing and negotiated a deal for his return.

The Farm News included a brief note with Friday's new cartoon announcing his return.

The publication said Friday's "witty insight will regularly return to its home on our editorial page and our website."
