LETTER FROM AN EDITOR ABOUT MY CARTOONS, AND MY REPLY – The Moderate Voice

A symptom of the media become propaganda outlets for the political parties is that it no longer seeks to inform or challenge is readers or watchers. Rather it seeks to create and promote narratives that that furthers its agenda.

I’m a political cartoonist. I often hear from editors who receive my pitches who state my cartoons are too controversial, or too left-wing, or they can’t do anything on Donald Trump. Often times I lose a client because of what I choose to draw cartoons about. I’ve been in this business for over 25 years so I’m not naive and I know every news outlets’ first order of business is to make money. I usually respond with “I understand” and a thank you. I’m in a business too so I’m not out to argue and debate with editors or to burn bridges.
