A Letter From Michael:
It's with great sadness that I announce the end of the Investor's Business Daily daily print edition and the end of a great editorial page, as you know it. I am proud of the work that we've accomplished over the last ten years that I have been co-managing the page and the many years before that.
Wes Mann & company have constituted the finest editorial team- one that delivered real news and real issues without the filter of political correctness. It was a beacon for the truth. I was proud to work with them and our page will be missed, at a time when it is needed the most.
When I came on board at IBD, I promised Bill O'Neil two things: I would elevate the visibility and influence of the IBD editorial page to the most influential political movers and shakers in the country and I would win him a Pulitzer Prize. I am proud to say that I accomplished both of those goals.
I thank Bill for giving me this great opportunity.
I can only say I learned so much from our thoughtful, knowledgeable and intrepid staff. It was a team of original thinkers with a great depth of knowledge, brilliant and fearless.
I am so proud that I won my second Pulitzer for the IBD editorial page. They are some of the finest journalists I know. It was a pleasure beginning each day with them. I don't think I ever had so much fun going to work each and every single day. I will miss it.
It is the end of an era but the beginning of a new chapter. I will keep you all posted.
Today is my last day my cartoons will be posted on the IBD website. For the time being, you can continue to see my work here and at: www.michaelpramirez.com
I did not see any explanation as to why?
Great cartoonist. He really stuck it to Obunghole.
Does Rupert Murdoch control IBD?
If so, that would explain it : )
...I did not see any explanation as to why?
If you take a look at his work at his website, you will see he was a victim of political correctness...
I doubt he’ll be out of work long.
Good info! Thanks! :)
I think I mght have an idea...
This is distressing.
First I learn that Bill Whittle and PJTV have split the sheets. While browsing the videos at u-toob for more clues as to why I also notice that ZoNation and PJTV are also splitzville.
Now Ramirez and IBD.
He may be going to another publication where you can see his stuff. I don’t know his work but from other people’s comments, he must be very good.
>>> It is the end of an era but the beginning of a new chapter. I will keep you all posted.
OK, keep us posted.
He has been a big Cruz supporter and made a lot of anti-Trump cartoons in April.
I HOPE he’s not #NEVERTRUMP.
Follow his material and he’s anti-TRUMP.....
As someone else opined he will land on his feet - and yes, I think he’s very good. I guess the sentiment I was trying to convey was that, at a time when conservatives and conservative voices seem to be lost in the din of leftist madness, it is depressing to see three voices that I believe to be among the very best out there stilled.
I hope to read that they have each landed somewhere soon.
Interesting. I had his ‘toons on my GoComics feed up until a couple of months ago, when I deleted him. He was getting to bleak, black, and unamusing. Guess I wasn’t the only one to feel that. He’s become sort of a Herblock on the right of center: nasty for nasty’s sake.
