DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa editorial cartoonist has been rehired by the farm publication that fired him earlier this year.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/29ED1F6 ) that 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.”
