Tucker Toons and Don Drawings

As news spread quickly Monday that two longtime cable-news hosts, Fox News’s Tucker Carlson and CNN’s Don Lemon, had been dropped by their networks, editorial cartoonists wasted no time rendering their sharp judgment.

Michael Cavna, at The Washington Post, highlights a half dozen editorial cartoons and thoughts from the corresponding cartoonists about the same day dismissals of a couple cable personalities.

“The coupling of the two news events was natural. The first thought that came to mind was, ‘Anchors away!’” Ramirez says. “Lemon’s antics [and] divisive and radical views on the left political hemisphere, and Carlson’s behavior and promotion of conspiratorial nonsense on the right, seemed destined for a consequential conclusion.”

Lisa Benson, Michael Ramirez, Ann Telnaes, Mike Luckovich, Tim Campbell, and Jack Ohman are featured.

To be fair there were a few cartoonists taking the Carlson side of the kerfuffle, none defending Lemon.

One thought on “Tucker Toons and Don Drawings

  1. I wonder if, now that CNN has announced a Town Hall with drumpf, Don Lemon is glad he’s no longer associated with CNN.
