Newspapers Strike Back


cjones08172018

This Thursday, over 70 newspapers (so far) will run coordinated editorials defending a free press from Donald Trump’s attacks that the media is the “enemy of the American people” and “fake news.” It’s being coordinated by The Boston Globe.

I probably have several newspaper clients participating in this, but one that’s definitely on board is the Sarasota News Leader. They asked me to do a cartoon on the subject they could run with their editorial this Thursday. It’s something I wouldn’t miss being a part of.

To me, an enemy of the American people and democracy is one who attacks a free press. A leader who believes an informed public is dangerous is not a leader for a free nation.

Your support in the form of donations is appreciated. I am fully independent as I’m not employed by a newspaper or with a major syndicate (leaving one to be independent). It does take a lot of work to provide you with cartoons, columns, and videos almost every day (more than any other political cartoonist), and I don’t charge my clients much at all. If you can, please consider making a financial contribution to keep the fun flowing, or purchase a signed print for $40. Whether you can help support, can’t, or just choose not to, please continue to enjoy and keep reading my work. Thank you!!!

Watch me draw.

    I hope that the editorials are not identical, a la Sinclair Broadcasting.
