    Wilson gained fame with his offbeat drawings in magazines like Playboy, The New Yorker and National Lampoon. One drawing featured a man deliriously happy as he is being strapped into the electric chair and saying, “Gee, it’s just like in the movies.” Another showed an eye doctor with a knife about to attack a patient who is reading an exam chart that says, “I am an insane eye doctor and I am going to kill you now…” On Halloween, Wilson posted an old image from Playboy on his Facebook page. Wilson told David Letterman in 1982 that he was always...
  • Here We Go Again: CNN Implies Cartoonist Was Fired Over Anti-Trump Cartoon. Turns Out He Wasn't

    PJ Media ^ | 07/02/2019 | John Ellis
    Proving that journalistic integrity isn't one of their corporate strengths, CNN published an article with the misleading (to the point of being outright deceitful) headline: "Canadian Cartoonist Loses Job After Illustration of Trump Went Viral."Obviously intended to gin up support for Canadian cartoonist Michael de Adder while stoking the raging anti-Trump fires burning inside many of their readers, the article opens with the statement: A Canadian cartoonist's illustrations of Donald Trump playing golf over the bodies of two drowned migrants went viral Wednesday. Two days later, Michael de Adder said on Twitter that he had been let go by...

  • Mark Night, "Sexist/Racist" cartoonist, gone from twitter

    09/11/2018 9:12:01 AM PDT · by Tao Yin · 19 replies
    Did Twitter remove @Knightcartoons from their site, or did he delete it himself? Bing news has a collation of articles/commentaries about Mark Knight and the current situation Labeled sexist and racist, he is guilty of wrong-think and his twitter account is now gone from history. For me, this is my 1984 moment. At least the firemen who burned books had to physically destroy something. Today, when you are labelled a thought criminal, either the digital mob forces you out or the digital demi-gods smite you from history with a keystroke or algorithm.

    Daily Caller ^ | 12/22/15 | Chuck Ross
    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz slammed The Washington Post on Tuesday after the paper depicted his two young daughters as monkeys in an editorial cartoon. In an article accompanying her drawing, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Ann Telnaes wrote that while it is an "unspoken rule in editorial cartooning that a politician’s children are off-limits," she felt that Cruz's daughters, Caroline and Catherine, were "fair game" because the Republican presidential candidate used them in a Christmas parody video Ted Cruz uses his kids as political props — Ann Telnaes (@AnnTelnaes) December 22, 2015 Cruz responded, urging Telnaes to attack him...

    Ted Rall, a noxious left-wing political cartoonist who has advocated violence against conservatives and on more than one occasion revealed himself as a racist, finally went too far, even for the same LA Times that champions those who threaten Jews with curb-stomping. According to the Times, in a May 11 article, Rall outright lied about a 2001 experience he had with the LAPD. Ted Rall — a freelance cartoonist whose work appears regularly in The Times — described an incident in which he was stopped for jaywalking on Melrose Avenue in 2001. Rall said he was thrown up against a...
  • RIP, Jim Berry: For 40 years, 'Berry's World' cartoonist dispensed relatable laughs

    The Washington Post ^ | March 23, 2015 | Michael Cavna
    ... In so many ways, to read Jim Berry was to meet Jim Berry. "Berry's World," the syndicated single-panel feature that he drew for 40 years, beginning in 1963, was a remarkably steady stream of thoughtful observational humor that — like the unfussy art itself — rarely seemed to strain for the laugh. Each gag, as steady as a top golfer's approach shots, just "landed." Precision meets concision ... Mr. Berry died last Friday in Boynton Beach, Fla., at age 83 ...

    Within the growing body of work in the field of Comically Erroneous Political Comparisons, Guardian cartoonist Steve Bell just distinguished himself as a rising star. Here’s a Sept. 1st cartoon by Bell, an artist who clearly doesn’t want his creative expression to be fenced in by stubborn political and geographic realities.We’ll take a wild stab, and work under the assumption that Bell’s cartoon is inspired by the recent row concerning Israel’s announcement that it’s taking control of 1000 acres of land near Gvaot in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank.Now, here’s a size comparison between Israel and Russia.  This of course doesn’t...

    Eli Valley, artist in residence at the far-left, Obama-supporting Jewish Daily Forward has created one of the most anti-Semitic cartoons ever published. Placed at, the radical website dedicated to anti-Israel rhetoric, the cartoon depicts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu eating Barack Obama’s limbs, then forcing him to give him oral sex, all in the name of Israeli defense. But Valley’s “art” is hardly confined to radical websites. It’s been published in New York Magazine, The Daily Beast,

    Newsbusters ^ | 8/1/11 | Ken Shepherd
    Today Tucson congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) cast her first vote since she was critically injured in a January shooting. You'll recall that in the weeks that followed, the media bemoaned the incivility -- supposedly predominantly conservative in nature -- of the political debate which had allegedly created a climate of hate. But there appears to to be no firestorm over how, just last week, Arizona Daily Star cartoonist David Fitzsimmons fantasized about President Obama sending a SEAL team to assassinate Tea Party-friendly House Republicans.
