  • Cartoonist fired after refusing to apologize

    Apparently American newspaper editors aren't the only ones who fold under criticism after initially approving an editorial cartoon. The German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung apologized for a cartoon criticizing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that appeared in its pages last week. The image, which Dieter Hanitzsch drew in the wake of the Gaza massacre, was seen by some as anti-Semitic. http://www.newsweek.com/benjamin-netanyahu-cartoon-german-newspaper-anti-semitic-suddeutsche-zeitung-931718?yptr=yahoo After the artist refused to apologize for his cartoon, he was dropped by his long-time paper.

  • Jake Thrasher wins SPJ Mark of Excellence

    A big congrats to Jake Thrasher for winning the 2018 Mark of Excellence from Society of Professional Journalism! The SPJ award honors the best in student journalism.

And in a "welcome to the real world" coda, the cartoonist noted — in the same email announcement about the SPJ award — his position at the local Mississippi newspaper, the Oxford Eagle, was eliminated after the publisher left and the budget cut. So — welcome to...  read more
