CSotD: Journalism 101 (optional course)

Kevin Necessary (AMS) offers a sarcastic salute to ignorance. I like it, though I wish we weren’t at a stage where ignorance matters quite so much and spreads quite so readily. The trigger for this cartoon is apparently the pushback over LeBron James’ quick Tweet following the death of Ma’Khia Bryant, which he subsequently deleted […]

Newspaper Blames Someone Other for Cartoon

From Greensburg Daily News Editor Kevin Green: The Daily News has been contacted by multiple readers who were upset and even angry about an editorial cartoon titled “Police Training Flashcards” that appeared on Tuesday’s Opinion page. The cartoon painted an unflattering and unfair portrait of the law enforcement community and does not represent this newspaper’s […]

The Big Lie – Garry Trudeau and The Pulitzer

Yesterday The Beat with Ari Melber included a segment with cartoonist Garry B. Trudeau the creator of the Doonesbury comic strip. There were two problems with the piece: first, G.B was given less than half the four and a half minutes allotted; and second, Mr. Melber, in his long-winded introduction, repeated the false line about […]

MIke Peterson Sez: Check Your Syndicate’s Website

Daily Cartoonist colleague Mike Peterson posted an advisory on his Twitter feed: That leads me to point out a couple examples. After Buckles ended in March King Features Syndicate dropped the comic strip from its list of offerings. When they did that eight or nine other features fell off the page. Eventually most of the […]

A History of an Anti-Vaccinationist Cartoon

Smallpox is a now eradicated virus that caused high fevers, fatigues and a rash. It is estimated to have killed some 300 million people from 1900 alone and a vaccine for the illness was first developed in 1796. Despite this development, scepticism about vaccines remained high. The Anti Vaccination Society of America was founded in […]

CSotD: Clan Rivalry

Marty Two-Bulls sets our theme today, reposting a playful bit of mockery it would be uncool for someone else to suggest. The timing is good because I just discovered that the Crow are not the only Northern Plains people among whom clans are named by their rivals, though his Oglala are apparently not among them. […]

CSotD: Monday Miscellany

Timing is everything, and I’m in firm agreement with the woman in Christopher Weyant’s cartoon, because the pollen right now is kicking my ass, and maybe putting the mask back on would be a good idea, even though I’ve had both my shots.   Our governor has canceled the mandate, a little prematurely I think, […]

CSotD: Truth, and other partisan matters

Joel Pett wraps up both the message and the problem of World Press Freedom Day in a single cartoon: We all want truth. We just can’t agree on what it is.   We should expect spin, the presentation of facts from a partisan viewpoint. John Cole offers a chuckle about the FBI search of Rudy […]

Intellectual Property Stolen from Andy Singer

Differing from those instances when a cartoon is modified by redrawing one portion of the art to change the purpose, here is a case where the entire idea is just redrawn without credit or permission. A US cartoonist has accused a Hong Kong education publisher of “stealing” his work after a drawing depicting a “cultural […]

CSotD: Friday Juxtapositions

(Kevin Kallaugher)   (Matt Wuerker – Politico) The State of the Union speech was, indeed, a welcome relief from years past. It began on the East Coast well after the bedtime of anyone who has to be up by 4 am, but I decided to catch the first few minutes, hit record and watch the […]

CSotD: Deliberate lies and foolish sincerity

One of the advantages for a newspaper of employing a local cartoonist is that, when someone in your congressional delegation says something really stupid, he can quickly bring it to the attention of your readers. I don’t know how well this Andy Marlette (Creators) cartoon is going to go over with readers of the Pensacola […]

CSotD: Who can you count on when they won’t count you?

There’s a full docket today, but let’s start with something specifically timely: Marc Murphy’s commentary on the start of the Kentucky Derby, which will be run Saturday in Louisville, where Murphy is cartoonist for the local paper. In posting the cartoon, he explained, “It’s almost time to sing just the good parts of the old […]

CSotD: The Search for Meaning

Oh, thank you thank you thank you, Deb Milbrath, for commenting on this ridiculous GOP talking point, which is based on misreading a story in a sleazy British tabloid, in which the writer conflates an almost entirely unrelated study with the Green New Deal with Biden’s acceptance of some GND concepts. I was hoping for […]

CSotD: The Busy Bodies

Maria Scrivan is a pretty upbeat person, which makes today’s Half Full (AMS) particularly striking, because behind those lovely doughnuts she packs an exasperated punch. Having worked in both advertising and commentary, I’m aware that there is nothing you can say, however plain, however obvious, that someone won’t misinterpret or, as in her cartoon, completely […]
