In the interest of fairness…

Friday, October 28th, 2005

At, in reaction to the nearly-identical Rosa Parks cartoons, they’ve got a blog post from cartoonist Mike Lester on the issue.

Give an editorial cartoonist a forum, and he’ll talk about how it’s a shrinking field, how cartoonists are losing their relevance, how papers are opting for syndication rather than the unique voice of their staff cartoonist, blah blah blah.

This is a little annual special where KFOR hires “the independent surveying firm of Research Associates, located right here in Lincoln, to conduct the survey.” We are assured that “…the results would vary no more than plus or minus 4.9% […]
