CSotD: Knowing a Guy

Everybody is jumping on the Manafort sentencing, and I like Stuart Carlson‘s take in large part because he doesn’t specify the offense that the defendant was convicted of. We can assume, racists and classists that we are, that the fellow didn’t evade millions of dollars in taxes, but, unlike some cartoonists that compare a sentence […]

WASP Accuses Jewish Cartoonist of Anti-Semitism

  Following the foofaraw of Ilhan Omar’s remarks about a “push for allegiance to a foreign country,” and Meghan McCain’s protest to that statement because, in part, she “verge[‘s] on being a Zionist as well,” cartoonist Eli Valley, who is not a fan of the current leadership in the U. S. or in Israel, drew […]

CSotD: Remembrance of Things Past

Today, I’ll be looking back at things which have resurfaced, but, first, this Juxtaposition of the Day (Ann Telnaes)   (Mike Marland) We try to keep this stuff in the family, but somehow it got out that, during a hearing in the New Hampshire legislature on a bill to allow seizure of guns from people […]

CSotD: Things we don’t have to be told

Mike Thompson addresses the Michael Jackson “revelations,” which I put in quotation marks because, come on. You don’t have to be Archie Bunker to have had serious doubts about Jackson’s innocence, which gives me a problem with the cartoon: It’s hard to picture this fellow as a one-time fan, though I realize the 14-year-olds who […]

CSotD: Serena, Wiley & a Star-Spangled Juxtaposition

The firehose of Trumpian foolishness often results in a whole lot of versions of the same gag. But his bizarre, unhinged two-hour ramble in front of the Conservative Political Action Committee gathering yielded, besides Eugene Robinson’s horrified response, (and this one, and this one, and others) this weird photo and, from that, a boatload of […]

Now is the Winter of Apologies

Apologies from cartoonists are coming so fast they’re stumbling over each other.   After already issuing a statement apologizing for a rude suggestion aimed at President Trump, papers, this past week, began receiving “a hard-copy letter of apology” from cartoonist Wiley Miller: “Dear Editors, “I greatly appreciate your allowing me the opportunity to explain and […]

Cartoonist’s Apology is Proper in This Case

  Toronto Star editorial cartoonist Theo Moudakis has taken down a cartoon and prevented it from being published as scheduled in the March 1, 2019 edition of the Star.     The offending cartoon:   Theo shared the cartoon Thursday night ahead of being printed in the Friday Star. And instantly came under fire for […]

CSotD: The Morning After

I still don’t understand how deadlines work for political cartoonists. There are cartoonists leaping to the fray with each wrinkle in the news and there are those who draw cartoons that sit for weeks. Sure, some are full-time and some have other duties, but do the cartoonists in that second group really have no ability […]

CSotD: Piercing the Cohen of Silence

RJ Matson offers one of the more neutral cartoons regarding Michael Cohen’s planned appearance today before the House Oversight Committee. Cohen blew a previous plea bargain by lying, and, as all fans of “Law & Order” (the TV show, not necessarily the concept) know, it’s standard procedure to attempt to impeach any witness — even an […]

Lurking Danger for Editorial Cartoonists

  The Tucson Sentinel is reporting… A list of household names on the Arizona Daily Star staff must soon decide if they’ll stay on the job — the newspaper’s corporate owners have offered buyouts for older workers, with the veiled threat of potential layoffs pending if not enough staffers accept. At least a dozen journalists […]

CSotD: Belief vs Understanding

David Rowe on the conviction, in an Australian court, of George Cardinal Pell for sexually assaulting choir boys. Rowe has a well-earned reputation for amusingly ghastly depictions of people, but I think he wisely recognized that there’s no need for it this time, and that linked article, though a model of objective reporting, is horrific […]

The New Brouhaha in Editorial Cartooning

  From KGTV San Diego: San Diego Union Tribune cartoonist Steve Breen created a picture of authors James Baldwin and Toni Morrison, and actor Jussie Smollett, with the title “Famous African American Story Tellers,” according to Harris’ email.
