"It was part of a larger overhaul, I believe, of comics, but why they decided what was in and what was out, that's not known to anybody except them, I guess," Adams told Fox News. /i]

Author of the newspaper comic strip "Dilbert" Scott Adams has revealed that his work has been removed from nearly 80 markets.

Speaking with Fox News, Adams revealed that "Dilbert," a comic that he has written and illustrated since 1989, is no longer being printed by Lee Enterprises, which owns nearly 100 papers across the country.


The comic series, which makes fun of office culture and themes within the workplace, appears in thousands of newspapers across 57 countries, and is published in 19 languages.

The popular comic strip has spawned books and calendars based off the series, with more than 20 million being sold.

Adams told Fox News that "Dilbert" wasn’t the only comic strip that faced the chopping block, with other strips being canceled by the outlet, though the decisions as to which ones they were getting rid of were made individually.

Scott Adams has always had a sharp pen, and he is perhaps the only cartoonist with the technical background and sense of the absurd to make an engineer hilarious. But after a recent outburst of double-plus ungood crimethink, he has been dropped by many papers that have carried Dilbert for decades. Is there a line for free speech, and if so, what should happen when you cross it?  Steve, Scott and Zo wrestle with the problem while Bill wrestles with five days without studio internet.
