E&P: 'Doonesbury' Tells the Truth

'Doonesbury' Strip Showing Bush Defending Torture at Yale is 'Fact-Based,' Says Trudeau: "Was this past Sunday's 'Doonesbury' -- which had George W. Bush defending the burning of Yale University fraternity initiates with a brand in 1967 -- fact or fiction?

'Totally fact-based,' replied Garry Trudeau, in response to an E&P e-mail query. 'Bush's comment in panel seven is a direct quote, which is why I put it in quotation marks. In the original Yale Daily News expose, we ran a photo of a pledge's seared backside.'"
