    Since all of our news is merely the embedded grit in our running commentary, the cartoonist’s job of providing broad caricatures and overstated parodies was redundant.

    True. Most popular news and entertainment media are cartoonish, whether bland or violent, their output the equivalent of pink slime. They process reality to sanitize and color saturate it to sell their particular audience. How many of us have been involved in a news event, no matter how small, and realized how it was distorted when portrayed in the media? We are fed from a long “newspaper” spoon.

    I was very disappointed and irked by the way the local newspaper reporter “interviewed” me (over the phone) about my new business without ever setting foot on the grounds. Accuracy is not their strong suit.
    One of many reasons I check facts on what I read and hear and watch.
    {as well as trying to see more than one side of an issue}

    And it’s because that’s what we want. We, the public, no longer want news; we want our preconceptions buffered, our biases fed, so that we can go back to our camps and shout our slogans at the “other”.

    The problem with the media is that it has always, always, given us exactly what we demand.

    The sign on the wall pretty well defines today’s version of “journalism”, in the press, and electronic media, toons or no.

    “Accuracy is not their strong suit.”

    The accuracy is always 100%.
    Details of any story that do not serve to tell the Truth and inform the opinions of the audience are unnecessary distractions from the point of being in journalism, to indoctrinate and manipulate the population.

    Yeah, and we a ALL want “seizure vision”, too (you know, that fast-action camera crap – and the faster, the better)! Sheesh.

    300 editorial cartoonists made this funny a week ago.
