Political Cartoons are Relics, Replace with Memes

  As a scholar who studies social media and memetics, I wonder if political cartoons are the best way to connect with today’s diverse readership. Many crave searing, cutting political commentary – and they’re finding it in internet memes. What if internet memes were elevated – not only as a serious art form but also […]

A Brief History of Recent Antisemitic Cartoons

  Foreign media outlets that frequently incite against Israel are much more likely than others to slip into antisemitism.

The Late, Great Dwane Powell

  I have gotten way past the point of thinking anyone owes me anything. I’ve done OK with what I’ve been given and won’t bitch because I didn’t get a cherry on my free ice cream Sundae. But I can get pissed off on someone else’s behalf. The Pulitzer Prize is a subjective award; it’s […]

Salt Lake Tribune to Try New Business Model

  Nonprofit status has become a common business model for many news organizations just starting out.
