From the Associated Press, as found in The Baltimore Sun:

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- An art gallery director says she was fired for talking on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart last week about a sexually explicit caricature of President Bush, a sheik and a barrel of oil.
Susan Buzzi and Alfred Phillips, who painted the piece, were among guests on The Daily Show. Buzzi said she was told Wednesday that her "services are no longer required."
"I certainly didn't expect this," she said yesterday.
The Broward Art Guild assured Phillips Buzzi's firing had nothing to do with exhibiting his work or appearing on the show. Still, Phillips said the timing "gives the appearance that censorship is alive and well."
