The death of the Newspaper Cartoonist
With all this talk of layoffs at daily newspapers all over the country, one position that doesn’t get much press is the editorial cartoonists. This Washington Post blog article brings the story to light. It even mentions Cincinnati’s own Jim Borgman as one who has been pushed out this year.
Will we soon see a group of middle aged men marching to Washington, ink and Wacom tablets in hand, looking for their own bailouts? Is this the death of the political cartoon as we know it?
