Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for March 01, 1994
Calvin: I like following the news! News organizations know I won't sit still for any serious discussion of complex and boring issues. They give me what I want: antics, emotional confrontation, sound bites, scandal, sob stories and popularity polls all packaged as a soap opera and horse race! It's very entertaining. Hobbes: Then commentators wonder why the public is cynical about politics. Calvin: You can tell this is an in-depth story, because it's got an article next to the chart.
