I really LIKE the work done by editorial cartoonists, since they have the power to cause great change in our society.
On occasion, though, a cartoon strays a bit too far, and can cause embarrassment to the paper it gets published in. Garry Trudeau has ruffled a few feathers on occasion, and so has Steve Benson.
In April, the New York Times published a cartoon that offended enough people that the paper decided to stop publishing political cartoons. THIS is the cartoon that caused the outrage:
The cartoon was thought to be anti-Semitic by a number of people. To a degree, i would agree with them. However, in view of Trump's recent actions in, and towards, Israel, I also believe its pretty accurate.
As Ann Telnaes said this morning in The Washington Post, editorial cartoons are democracies "canary in the coal mine".
